One response to “Sanda Schuldmann Clark of Compassion & Choices Arizona at DGT

  1. Sanda Clark spoke of the one year old Tucson chapter of Compassionate Choices of AZ which is advocating for choices for the terminally ill, to die with dignity, using physician prescribed meds. Oregon passed this law in 1998, has had 108 such deaths of 39,000 deaths since then, so it’s a “privilege, not for all” as a choice to die by self-medication, taking sleeping pills w/ liquid, with death within 5 to 10 minutes. Judith Willis also spoke of the painful death of her 56 year old son, with Stage 4 colon cancer last May, 2015. She said her son Gunner ultimate chose to stop eating/drinking. Sanda advocated this legislation in Arizona, for people to choose and be in control of a good death, to alleviate suffering at the end. Bills in Arizona legislature are stalled in committee. California and Montana have passed similar bills, but under challenge, also valid in Washington state and partially in New Mexico. Tucson and Bisbee have passed compassionate resolutions, as well as Town of Oro Valley (proclamation). Audience was knowledgeable, knew of several death discussion books “Being Mortal”, “Knocking on Heaven’s Door”, “Final Exit”.
