* In Catholicism, the faithful are instructed to confess their sins to a Priest so that they can be granted absolution and so their soul can be unburdened by sin [[note]]While confession is the only way to be sure, someone who is unable to undergo this rite before death can still get into Heaven by praying to God for forgiveness and by being sincerely repentant[[/note]]. Catholics who are in very poor health or who are dying are highly encouraged to make a confession so can go to Heaven when they die. If someone has a serious sin on his conscience then a deathbed confession can be a LastSecondChance to save his soul.

Perrine decides to go anyway so she can at least try meeting him and forging her own path.]]

* ''TheProfessionals''. The episode "Everest Was Also Conquered" starts with the former head of MI6 saying "I killed Suzie Carter" on his deathbed. Suzie Carter was a witness at a 1953 corruption inquiry who [[MakeItLookLikeAnAccident supposedly committed suicide]]. This causes a [[YouKnowTooMuch series of murders]] as the other conspirators race to cover up their involvement.

In evidence law, such a confession (or anything said while dying, really), is a ''[[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dying_declaration dying declaration]]''. Dying declarations are not subject to the usual rules of hearsay, and can thus be admissible when they otherwise wouldn't be. The theory behind this is that nobody about to die would have a reason to lie, [[ThanatosGambit would they]]?
