Life's Dominion: An Argument About Abortion, Euthanasia, and Individual Freedom (Dworkin, R.D.)

Publication Title: 
Bioethics

In Life's Dominion Dworkin aims at defusing the controversy about abortion and euthanasia by redefining its terms. Basically it is not a dispute about the right to life, but about its value. Liberals should grant that human life has not only a personal, but also an intrinsic value; conservatives should accept the principle of toleration which requires to let people decide for themselves about matters of intrinsic value.
