Should we have the right to choose death with dignity, peace and care? You sometimes hear someone exclaiming, “If my life ended at this moment, I’d die happy.” This usually happens just after they have experienced something that was important to them — meeting an adored celebrity, having an especially profound moment with a loved one, experiencing something they had long anticipated. The point, I think, is that they are so happy at that instant that they either can’t imagine being any happier — so what’s the point of trying? — or they want to carry that moment of euphoria into their death.
Supporting us financially, in any way you can, will help us to improve end of life choices and enable us to support people (regardless of their circumstances) to make sure their rights at that time are fully respected. Every contribution is a step in the right direction towards greater choice
Friends at the End is a Scottish Charity promoting knowledge and understanding of end of life choices and campaigning to change the law to allow Assisted Dying in the UK.
