More & more people who are terminally ill are choosing assisted suicide. Other groups such as the elderly, the disabled, or even the depressed or suicidal are being swept up into this movement of self-deliverance. This book counterbalances such quick fix advice with alternatives of hope, compassion, & death with real dignity. Offers help to those who see assisted death measures on their state ballots & wonder when legalized suicide will become a reality. Joni takes her reader into the lives of the elderly, the disabled, & the terminally ill & lets them speak about assisted death. She doesn t hold to the position of life support when death is imminent. Instead she gives practical help to meet the hard, cold realities for those facing, or considering, death.

Tada ( Joni ) frames her view of the ``right to die'' issue in the context of personal growth through tragedy--her own as teenage victim of an accident that left her a quadriplegic and other episodes involving those close to her--into an enabling Christian faith.
