Terry Pratchett: Choosing To Die

  • Published 1 year ago

In a sincere, personal documentary, Sir Terry Pratchett, the author considers how you can choose to end his life.

Diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease in 2008, Terry wants to know if he might be able to end his life before his illness takes over.

Traveling to the Dignitas clinic in Switzerland, Terry witnessed first hand the procedures established for an assisted death, and faces to the point where that would take the lethal drug.

Sir Terry Pratchett has made an emotional plea the right to take his own life, saying: I live in hope that you can jump before I pushed

Unfortunately, however, I also found the self-deception: in cafes, restaurants and streets, the vast majority of people I talked to wanted desperately to believe that it was too late and that, surely, the South will never leave the union. It will. This is a short dialogue by Terry and the full interview will be uplifted once it becomes available to us.
