The dilemma of assisted dying presents British Quakers – and Quakers in general – with major issues and challenges, especially in relation to the Quaker testimonies (the ways in which Friends testify or bear witness to their beliefs in their everyday life: peace, truth, equality, and simplicity). As one Friend cogently observes, “I try to live up to Quaker testimonies. I try to make rational decisions and I want to do the same at my death.”

The purpose of this book, then, is to be a resource for Quakers of all backgrounds who wish to consider the issue of assisted dying, as well as to stimulate reflection and discussion among Friends.
