Author: Joni Eareckson Tada

Joni Eareckson Tada was confronted with these questions not only as she struggled against her own paralysis, but as she sat in her wheelchair by the bedside of her dying father. So much suffering, so much pain, she thought. Why not end it all quickly. Painlessly? More and more people who are terminally ill are choosing assisted suicide. Other groups such as the elderly, the disabled, or even the depressed or suicidal are being swept up into this movement of self deliverance. These are tempting enticements to those who hurt. When is it right to die? Counterbalances such quick fix advice with alternatives of hope, compassion, and death with real dignity. Tada offers to help those who are assisted death measures on their state ballots and wonder when legalized suicide will become a reality. Behind ever booklet printed by a right to die or a right to life group is a family. A family like yours. A disabled person like Joni. In her warm, personal way, Joni takes the reader into the lives of families, the elderly, the disabled, and the terminally ill, and lets them speak about assisted death. What they say is surprising. For those who agonize over the when and the how of dying at the time when assisted suicide is being openly debated, when is it right to die give guidance toward answers that are ethical, appropriate, and right in an age of advanced medical technology, who has not pondered the questions, how do I want to die? Can I control the way I will one day die? This book is for those who want help for the single national issue that will personally touch everyone’s life. Tada doesn’t give pat conclusions. She doesn’t hold to the position of life support when death is imminent. Instead she gives warm comfort from God and her experience and practical help to meet the hard, cold realities for those facing or considering, death. Not a dissertation on ethics, this book is filled with personal stories of real individuals facing life- and –death questions and finding hope.

Author: Gloria Vanderbilt

On a summer day in 1988, Carter Cooper, aged 24, dropped to his death from the 14th-floor terrace of his mother's New York City's apartment. Now, seven years later, Gloria Vanderbilt is finally able to set down the terrible events of that afternoon--to which she was a witness--in a book of overwhleming intensity, feeling, and beauty.

In 1988, Gloria Vanderbilt's 23-year-old son Carter committed suicide. As Vanderbilt looked on, Carter swung away from the terrace wall of her 14th-floor New York apartment and, in Vanderbilt's words, "He let go." In this poignant memoir, Vanderbilt reflects on her own painful history and what she describes as "the final loss, the fatal loss that stripped me bare." She thought, she says, that she could not survive the death of her son. This memoir is a testimony to her courage and her own return to life.

Life After Suicide

Life After Suicide Lowest new price: $27.50
Lowest used price: $7.63
List price: $27.95
Author: E. Betsy Ross

Life after Suicide: A Ray of Hope for Those Left Behind begins with personal and often painful journeys into the scarred psyches of people who lost a loved one to suicide. When the author's husband killed himself, she had a choice: either hide behind denial or tackle her grief head-on. Beginning with her own story of unfinished personal affairs, Ms. Ross also includes accounts of others who have struggled with recurring feelings of abandonment, rejection, and stigma while moving forward to stages of healing and restoration of faith in themselves. She then describes the dynamics of after-suicide bereavement and gives specific suggestions for helping survivors, children, and others. The author also discusses the ethical debate over suicide as a sin, widowhood by suicide, the delicate responsibilities of the coroner or police, and the importance of support groups. Ms. Ross presents her own reflections on suicide in moral, philosophical, and social terms - and the impact of the dysfunctional family - and explores possible influencing factors for both the act of suicide and society's attitude. Backed by years of research and her extensive work with survivors and support groups, this is a valuable guide for recovering from grief, offering useful information for both survivors and those who work with them. Capped by a comprehensive grief and postvention resource guide, Life after Suicide stands as an important resource for libraries, crisis centers, funeral homes, hospices, and other caregiving organizations.
