How Other States Treat Aid In Dying02/28/2012
Compassion & Choice is promoting "aid in dying," a movement that wants to shift personal decisions about the ending of life from government control to individual autonomy.
President Barbara Coombs Lee, who visited Hawaii for a series of talks about aid in dying last week, says Hawaii a statute already provides a legal foundation to help patients who want to receive lethal medication from their doctors.
In this second and final report, Coombs Lee talks about the experiences of four other states with "death with dignity," as aid in dying is sometimes called. Part 1 details her group's effort to make it easier for individuals to make end-of-life decisions.
