    • Abstract:
      This study examines the process of dying and considers death as an important social reality. Currently, a socially-shared ideal exists regarding this process and what would ultimately be considered a good death. This ideal is attainable, however, empirically and legally, it is not realistic. Along these lines, we have established an initial objective of measuring the support for two practices that could potentially help achieve the so-called "exit fees": euthanasia and physician-assisted suicide. Second, we test whether or not there are significant differences in the opinions and attitudes of Spaniards regarding their regulation and we examine the sociodemographic and contextual characteristics that could possibly help to explain these practices. And, finally, we interpret and discuss the empirical results from a sociological perspective, based on civic republicanism and bioethics. [ABSTRACT FROM AUTHOR]
    • Abstract:
      Este trabajo aborda el proceso de morir y la muerte como un hecho social de primer orden. Sobre dicho proceso y lo que sería una buena muerte existe un ideal socialmente compartido que, en la actualidad, se está en condiciones de alcanzar y del que, sin embargo, la realidad política y jurídica se aleja. En este contexto nos planteamos como objetivos, en primer lugar, medir el apoyo que tienen dos prácticas, como son la eutanasia y el suicidio médico asistido (SMA). En segundo lugar, contrastar si hay diferencias significativas en las opiniones y actitudes de los españoles respecto a su regulación y cuáles son las características sociodemográficas y contextuales que pudieran ayudarnos a explicarlas y, por último, interpretar y discutir los resultados desde una perspectiva sociológica que bebe del republicanismo cívico y la bioética.
