I recently saw a book in which a doctor saves a woman who had attempted suicide. This goes against her living will. The book is Do No Harm by Fiorella de Maria. It is set in Britian. The book looks really interesting and is written from a Catholic perspective.
I was wondering if the rules about living wills applied to people who were suicidal. Could a doctor in Britain really get in trouble for saving someone who tried to kill herself, regardless of what her living will said.
The author said it’s possible for doctors to be prosecuted for going against a living will. I thought patients had to be terminally ill in that case. Please let me know if I’m incorrect. This is a subject I don’t know much about.
I will probably read this book b/c it looks really good.
