Fran Schindler - Exit Guide from Final Exit Network
January 13, 2016
Fran Schindler is an exit guide with the Final Exit Network who makes sure that those that need to end their life due to illness are not alone. From the network: "We believe in death with dignity and an individual's right to self determination. We are the only organization that publicly provides education on all end of life choices as well as a compassionate presence to those who are suffering from incurable diseases and have chosen to end their suffering. We do not put an artificial requirement for an individual to be certified as likely to die in six months. Suffering does not recognize that restriction and neither do we.”
On the podcast we discuss what it is that the guides do and (most importantly) don’t do, giving people a friend to confide in while ending their life, the background process to be approved by the network, the preferred method of ending your life, legal trouble by the network and so much more. Fran also talks about her personal background and her own exit strategy. Such an enlightening episode.
