Medicine needs to be administered in an environment of immediacy, while the law rarely moves so quickly.

In the medical context and as the law on consent to medical treatment has evolved, it has become a basic accepted principle that "every human being of adult years and of sound mind has the right to determine what shall be done with his or her own body.
