The co-existence of physician-assisted suicide, euthanasia, organ harvesting, and transplantation in modern society sets the stage for the co-joining of these practices. This chapter argues that they are in fact co-joined, in both theory and practice, in what is called thrift-euthanasia. Thrift-euthanasia is not only advocated in theory, but is also conducted today on a national and international scale with impunity.

Keywords:   physician-assisted suicide, euthanasia, organ harvesting, organ transplantation, thrift-euthanasia
