Doctor, Please Help Me Die
Doctor, Please Help Me Die shows why most of us will die in ways unknown just 50 years ago, and why so many patients suffer at end of life. It traces the history of patients seeking relief from suffering at the end of life, and how cultural and professional customs have inhibited many doctors from helping their patients at the end.
Dr. Preston shows how most doctors fail their patients by not discussing dying with them, by refusing to consider legal physician aid in dying, and how they deceive the public in their refusal to help patients die. He discusses the religious, political, and legal battles in this part of the culture war, and gives advice to patients on how to gain peaceful dying.
