Tata Tutu


How would you like to die? | BrainStorms – Ed Lunnon’s Blog


Comments mads by Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu on the occasion of his 85th birthday last Friday:

“I hope I am treated with compassion and allowed to pass onto the next phase of life’s journey in the manner of my choice.

Today, I myself am even closer to the departures hall than arrivals, and my thoughts turn to how I would like to be treated when the time comes.

For those suffering unbearably and coming to the end of their lives, merely knowing that an assisted death is open to them can provide immeasurable comfort.”

Tutu’s daughter, the Rev Mpo Tutu von Furth, said she was right behind her father.

“I agree with him wholeheartedly. I think we all have to have a right to dignified death aand to be able to make choices around our dying,” she said.
