Abstract

In conclusion, it appears clear that the line between being forced to be medically treated and being allowed to refuse medical treatment is indeed very thin. This already minimal distinction becomes even fuzzier when we bring into the picture the interdependent terms of freedom, consent and autonomy, themselves used interchangeably by various actors in bioethical and political contexts.
