Choice In Dying is a blog written by Eric MacDonald arguing for the right to die and against the religious obstruction of that right. Eric MacDonald is a fine writer and a dedicated proponent of the right to assisted dying. He is an example of the newly-evolving 21st century thinking man.

In my opinion.
