    An Excellent Handbook for Right-to-Die Movement

    To Gently Leave This Life: The Right to Die is an excellent handbook for those who are living through the struggle now, and those new to the fight who are just realizing what could be in store for them when there is no way out of a prolonged, agonizing death. Elaine Feuer has succeeded in compiling the progress of the right-to-die movement in her carefully researched, helpfully illustrated, easily read short volume. This overview explains, especially to the naive reader, what the human tragedies were that precipitated changes in the law toward further control by patients to control their own deaths. She presents the safeguards and the modest use of these laws to reduce suffering at the end of life and the arguments against these changes. Right-to-die advocates around the world are moving fast, making it hard to keep such a book up-to-date, but Feuer has worked assiduously to make her information as accurate as possible, to demonstrate the importance of people being able to have more say about when and how the end will come.

    A must read to understand right-to-die movement!

    Elaine Feuer’s book, To Gently Leave This Life: The Right To Die, is a quick, must read for anyone who wants to understand the history of the movement. People like Elaine who have watched a loved one die a painful, slow death do not want anyone else to suffer a similar fate. But the fight to secure the legal Right-To-Die with dignity, peacefully, in every state requires that we all get educated and motivated to ensure it happens. Reading To Gently Leave This Life is a crucial first step in that education and motivation process.
