Summary adapted from case insert.

Examines efforts to legalize euthanasia and assisted suicide, exposing the oversimplification, flaws and myths surrounding safeguards, pain management, and suffering. Catherine Frazee, Wesley Smith, Jean Echlin, Bobby Schindler (brother of Terri Sciavo), Adrian Dieleman, and Canadian Senator Sharon Carstairs offer their personal experiences and insights and tangible solutions as to what needs to be done to improve the quality of life for all concerned and make a case that vulnerable people are directly threatened by euthanasia and assisted suicide.
