A starting point for the following considerations is an attempt at describing ethics attitude in the matter of limits of helping people who are in terminal state. The author assumes that increasing demand for providing such help in specialized institutions - hospices - is a sign of domination of ethics of sanctity of life in societies, in which humans, independently of their state of health have the right to medical benefits. In conclusion of the article the author states that traditional formulas of social justice, regardless of high popularity of some ideas of ethics of quality of life, still remain in force and one cannot expect that such a situation will change in the predictable future.
