“Everyone is entitled to a healthy death!" However good our public health care, however careful we are of our diet, however low the road toll falls, the all-causes death rate is, eventually, 100%. However far off the horizon looks for you now, we’ll all have to go through that vanishing point, and we should all take an interest in the boundary conditions. Andrew Denton wants Australians to be informed consumers at the end of life – empowered participants in a national conversation. We die as we live: in society, bound by rules, enmeshed in politics. Let’s talk it all through. It’s the biggest social justice issue of your life.
