Without a doubt it is a question to which we would turn over and over again until we refuse the indignity to die from Natural causes (it is capital N because it is Nature to blame). And surely we will overcome death sooner that later.
But the question until then remains. Sir Terry Pratchett has made a documentary about freedom to choose dignified death. And it seems he puts the question sharply. Be sure to see the film on 13.June 2011, 9 pm, BBC2.
