Dignity in Death Discussion

Our next meeting will be a discussion of Dignity in Death should be part of our right to a ‘good life’. The 10th March at 7.30pm at the White Rock Hotel

The BBC programme ‘How to Die : Simon’s Choice’ was a great illustration of how hard it is for everybody to organise a ‘good death’ as the well-rounded end to a ‘good life’.

·         Why do politicians find it so hard to support the moves towards a more humane end of life choice?
·         Is it really impossible to create safeguards that protect the vulnerable?
·         What would be our ideal way to organise a planned end of life, if we had the choice?

Sometimes ‘death’ feels like the last great taboo subject, but it is an unavoidable part of life and probably defines critical parts of our humanity.
Talking widely about our shared fate and facing it squarely, might even make it less scary!

Other Business
As the interest in the EU referendum begins to warm up, our debate on whether we stay or leave should get some interest. We need to get somebody to take the leave side of the debate and plan for the layout.
