Fatal Freedom is an eloquent defense of every individual's right to choose a voluntary death. The belief that we can speak about suicide calmly and rationally, as is done in this book, and that we can ultimately accept suicide as part of the human condition. This important work asks and points to clear, intelligent answers to some of the most significant ethical questions of our time.
