On Wednesday, 104-year-old scientist David Goodall bid farewell to his home in Australia to fly across the world to end his life.

The lauded ecologist and botanist is not suffering from a serious illness but wishes to bring forward his death. Key to his decision, he says, has been his diminishing independence.


Dr Goodall's decision to end his life was hastened by a serious fall in his apartment last month. He was not found for two days. Later, doctors said he needed to engage 24-hour care or be moved into a nursing home.

"He's an independent man. He doesn't want people around him all the time, a stranger acting as a carer. He doesn't want that," Mrs O'Neill said.

"He wants to have intelligent conversation and still be able to do the same things like catching the bus into town."

Eine Absage an alles, was Public Health heilig ist und den Tugendhaften immer wieder als ihre verdiente Belohnung verspricht: ein Leben, das um keinen Preis "vorzeitig" enden darf. Welchen Preis Dr. Goodall für so hoch hält, daß aus der vermeintlichen Belohnung eine Strafe wird, der er sich nicht unterziehen will, hat er eindrucksvoll präzise begründet.


Have no respect whatsoever for authority; forget who said it and instead look what he starts with, where he ends up, and ask yourself, "Is it reasonable?" (Richard Feynman)
