Chapter two covers affirming the right of competent adults to refuse medical treatment. Chapter three explains the right of mentally ill defendants to refuse medication. Chapter four covers the right of terminally ill persons to use experimental drugs. Outstanding essay sources include William Rehnquist, John Marshall Harlan, Wendy K. Mariner, S. Elizabeth Wilborn Malloy, and Judith Ann Wilson Rogers.
