Description

Rodney Syme has been an advocate for medically assisted dying for more than twenty years. In Time to Die he considers not only the ordeals experienced at the end of life, but also the suffering endured by those who are not dying but are in incurable pain. He shows through the stories of these people and their families, that their torment is exacerbated by the unknown length of their state. As confronting as these issues are, debate around assisted dying is the sign of a mature and compassionate society. In Time to Die, Syme again leads the conversation.
