My Right to Die: Assisted Suicide, My Family, and Me | Mother Jones

A thoughtful story from the son of a man who chose to take his own life.

Now he was. Finally, on the evening of January 29, he stumbled and fell during the night, and decided his time had come: He was afraid if he delayed any longer he'd become physically unable to remain in control of his own destiny.
