vote for dignity

Keeping one eye on the Swiss referendum proposals tomorrow.

Dignitas and Exit are providers of a service I wholeheartedly agree with, under the right circumstance and guidelines; and whilst I understand the concerns of the Swiss, who are bound to feel somewhat used by the many foreigners travelling solely to avail themselves of this very personal choice, I am deeply concerned that in a world where we should be encouraging and sharing good practice, and learning from others’ steps towards a life of choice from cradle to grave, this referendum could close the doors on any progressive attitude in other countries.

It’s a huge and emotive subject.

Come on Switzerland – accept your role in the bigger picture here, please.
