Summary
When and why is it all right to kill? When and why is it wrong? Three theories on the ethics of killing are critically examined in the book: deontology, a libertarian moral rights theory, and utilitarianism. The implications of each theory are worked out for different kinds of killing in chapters on murder, capital punishment, suicide, assisted death, abortion, survival lotteries, killing in war, and the killing of animals
