Do we have the right to end our lives if life itself becomes unbearable, or we are terminally ill? With unique access to Dignitas, the Swiss non-profit that has helped over one thousand people die, filmmaker John Zaritsky offers a revealing look at two couples facing the most difficult decision of their lives--and lets us see as one Chicago native makes the trip to Switzerland for what will become the last day of his life.

Powerful

Comments about PBS FRONTLINE: The Suicide Tourist DVD:

While everyone has a different opinion if it is acceptable to end your own life, I feel as though everyone should have their own choice. This is an amazingly powerful documentary showing you the pain and agony associated with a life ending illness. The Suicide Tourist is a very touching and saddening video but I think it is very informative and gives us all a glimpse at what must have been going through both Craig and the Ewert families heads. Thank you Frontline and the Ewert family for sharing such a personal time with everyone. My heart and prayers are with the Ewart Family and may Craig rest in peace.

Realistic and Wonderful

Comments about PBS FRONTLINE: The Suicide Tourist DVD:

This progam covers a subject that so many people do not wish to address - at least until it is too late. I am pro assisted suicide for humans. What point is there in staying 'alive' when there is no quality of life left and you have become a burden on friends, family and, usually, society.
This program explains perfectly, from a terminally ill person's view, why assisted suicide is needed and should be considered legal and socially accepted.

Honest and compassionate discussion

By Cookie

Comments about PBS FRONTLINE: The Suicide Tourist DVD:

This program shows an honest and open discussion about the right to die with dignity - in this instance a man faced with a terminal illness that drastically altered his quality of life. The director took a very sensitive topic and presented it in a compassionate and balanced manner. Craig and Mary opened their hearts and shared an intimate moment in the cycle of life to help others find their own voice in this discussion. Thank you for offering this on DVD PBS.

Powerful, Informative

By Patti

Comments about PBS FRONTLINE: The Suicide Tourist DVD:

I tuned in to this show, not really expecting it to be such a personal experience. It follows one man's journey to relieve himself of the uncertainty of how uncomfortable his final days may become, both for he and his family. It was at times disturbing, other times almost comforting. I felt sad he had to travel to Switzerland in order to have a humane euthanizing, legally. We need to have more of a dialogue in this country about end of life options, without fear and prejudice tainting it, as has happened with so many issues in recent years. This documentery is a good starting point to open the discussion.
