Killing Me Softly
Killing Me Softlyis a radical and compelling examination of the current euthanasia debate.
Frustrated by continuing controversy and political inaction in this area, prominent activists Philip Nitschke and Fiona Stewart present a powerful argument in favour of our right to die as we choose. Their concerns include the way in which the medical profession has assumed 'ownership' of death, and the fact that existing laws restrict our end-of-life choices. They offer a future where a 'Peaceful Pill' could revolutionise euthanasia just as the contraceptive pill transformed birth control a generation ago.
This book is recommended reading, not just for those who already believe we have the right to choose a dignified death but also for anyone still to be persuaded . . .
