Some remarkable art on the blog this week. From the Royal College of Art, Lauren Dutton envisages supplying body parts for donation whist providing a substitute mourning site – and asking us, “Can donating organs also be an act of remembrance?” A way of making special memories, a focal point for the bereaved, an act of generosity on the part of one who dies. Savulescu’s recent paper spoke of organ donation euthanasia. Not as a way of ‘harvesting’ but of allowing a special opportunity. Perhaps we can and should go further to make death something special. Something beautiful. Something, in fact, worth remembering.
Exit euthanasia blog analyses end of life issues, euthanasia, self-deliverance and assisted suicide. .........................................................
Exit does not give you a "quick answer": it gives you a responsible one, based on multidisciplinary study and embodying the latest research from around the world since 1980.
Please note the blog does *not* include detailed "how-to" information on methods of self-euthanasia or rational suicide. (see "About Exit" on the main menu.) But we publish the most extensive, scientifically supported and detailed information from any source you are likely to find.
