Abstract

End-of-life legislation, because of its bioethical, medico-legal, and judicial implications, is heatedly disputed in Europe and throughout the world, engendering a variety of legal end-of-life care options in different countries. Following years of debate and media coverage of cases of patient requests for withdrawal of treatment or physician- assisted suicide that divided public and judicial opinion on end-of-life care in Italy, a bill regulating judicial and medico-legal conditions has recently come up before Parliament.
