Director Statement

Suicide is often perceived as cowardly or selfish. But those who choose to finish their lives with a dignified ending are worthy of respect for their courage and self-sacrifice. In recent years, medical ethics have posed meaningful questions about patients lacking symptoms of life. By keeping them alive, are we prolonging life or death?
