The two films described here can also be ordered seperately on VHS.

Help Me Die. Exploring the bitterly controversial subject of euthanasia, Help Me Die probes the ethical issues involved when loved ones, who are terminally ill, ask a physician or family member for assistance in ending their life. It profiles individuals who desperately want to end their pain through suicide, as well as others who seek pain relief through medication, or through hospice programs which will permit them to die with dignity. This documentary invites us all to examine more closely our conceptions of personal rights and social responsibilities. 48 minutes

A Fate Worse than Death? This engrossing documentary follows several families who must decide whether to withdraw artificial life support from a loved one in a coma or vegetative state. Relatives, doctors, nurses, attorneys and ethicists comment on the complex moral and legal dilemmas such tragedies pose for families, for health providers, and for society as a whole. 50 minutes
