Exit International starts ‘2019 Disrupting Death workshop tour’ on the Gold Coast (Australia) on 25 July. The workshop tour consists of 8 workshops, seven in Australia and the last one in London (27th of October – just before brExit). The tour is about a new short film about Exit’s approach to the end of life choices. (and can be viewed at: https://vimeo.com/345291400).According to Exit Founder, Dr Philip Nitschke: ‘we made the film to help distinguish Exit’s unique approach to a good death. We are not an organisation that is solely about changing the law (although good laws are always a good thing). Rather, we want to see access to a good death at a time of one’s choosing become recognised as a fundamental human right that it is. Dying well is not a medical matter. There is nothing innate in the death experience that is medical. Just like childbirth is not implicitly a medical matter. But like childbirth, dying is something that the medical profession are co-opting. And in doing so they bring their values (and their prejudices) with them. Does doctor know best? You decide!
