qA Good Way to Go considering self-determination, mercy a self-termination.q tackles the difficult subjects of living, dying, suicide and euthanasia but concentrates on the care that can be given. The book is aimed at the general public not so much to be authoritative as provide original thoughts, and comprehensive enough to provide helpful material, to stimulate discussions, and provide an overview that might facilitate wholesome changes in our society. It is said to be well written and raising new and interesting points. The plea for a more merciful society begins with pastoral help to the dying, a better understanding of suicide, acceptance of self-termination, a look at ethics, health services and the law in regard to euthanasia. It is written from a Christian Western perspective because that is what has brought us to this place of confusion and anxiety about death and dying. It is important, that we take our bicultural and multicultural future very seriously in an ever increasing secular world and it would be audacious to speak on any other culture's behalf.Third-world countries do not appear to have euthanasia legislation, perhaps because there are minimal health resources and Nature is left to take her course. 44 An article in a#39;Peoplea#39;s dailya#39;.
