Dying Badly – New Zealand Stories

Dying Badly, compiled by retired intensive care specialist Dr Jack Havill and writer David Barber, contains relatives’ stories of bad deaths suffered by their loved ones. It illustrates the need for a compassionate change in the criminal law to allow medical assistance to die for those who choose to end their suffering safely and peacefully in a loving environment without risking a jail term for relatives and friends with them at the time.

You can read the book online here. It has multiple formats from Kindle to pdf.

It is very moving. The stories are painful and remind me of why we should insist that there is a better way to this.
