Turning the Tide
Through the lives of 5 individuals, this production explores how the legalisation of Euthanasia would affect society, in particular those who are most vulnerable: the disabled, the elderly and those who are chronically ill. Done in association with the Euthanasia Prevention Coalition, this powerful documentary looks at the concepts of compassion, dignity, quality of life, personal autonomy and choice, and explores how the law works in shaping a society.
The documentary includes Canadian disability rights activist, Catherine Frazee and Palliative Care Nurse Consultant, Jean Echlin, as well as Wesley Smith, attorney for the International Task Force Against Euthanasia and Assisted Suicide and Terri Schiavo's brother, Bobby Schindler.
