Final Exit

Produced by

Most of us think about our deaths, and some of us even plan for them. Fran Schindler is a guide with the Final Exit Network. The group says that mentally competent adults have a basic human right to end their lives. When Fran was diagnosed with a serious illness, she hated the idea of being bed-ridden, alone and in pain. She found the group Final Exit and learned how to end her life on her own terms. Now she is a guide to others, and has witnessed the deaths of many irreversibly ill men and women.
