Andrew Denton investigates the stories, moral arguments and individuals woven into discussions about why good people are dying bad deaths in Australia - because there is no law to help them.

Customer Reviews

Important topic.

Confronting and thought provoking topic but sensitively handled. Thanks for bringing this issue up- it needs to be addressed in Australia.

Andrew Denton is a legend!

I've always been fond of Andrew Denton & this podcast only adds to my love for him. A very respectfully presented and well produced podcast. Highly recommend!

Thought Provoking, as it should be

A great start for a discussion that NEEDS to happen. The Medical, legal and political community have had their heads stuck in the sand about this issue for too long. Death IS a part of Life, and should be a part of any Medical treatment, not something to be avoided because the Medical community doesn't want to admit that death should be a choice for patients to have, especially when they are still capable of making a choice.
Also, the part that the Medical and Pharmacutical industries play in using terminal patients in their research efforts should be examined as well.
Andrew, Follow the money. Finance may explain something of the Medical communities reluctance to allow the assisted death option.
