Dignity in Dying: Voices For Choice

If you did not know, UK is kind of behind on the whole assisted dying issue. The problem is it’s not allowed. There are loud cases all the time, with unfortunate relatives having to bring their loved ones who want to die to Switzerland and alike. There is by the way a good British movie on the subject A Short Stay in Switzerland.

There is a number of celebrity advocates and an advocacy group trying to change the attitudes and laws on assisted dying in the UK, and they are hosting a literary event on April 30 in London – an evening of literature, poetry and spoken word, culminating in a Q&A with Sir Terry Pratchett & Rob Wilkins. 

I have been following Dignity in Dying for a while and believe that what they are doing is very important. I can not make it to the event myself but thought I’d share the info. Let me know how it goes…
