    The Right to Die with Dignity

    George F. Will, in the Washington Post, writes a thoughtful piece about some of the ethical and legal aspects of a person’s right to end his or her life highlighting, of course, Brittany Maynard’s choice last year to move to Oregon to be relieved of the suffering caused by terminal brain cancer. The article includes a particularly insightful quote by one advocate of giving people more freedom to manage death: “I am doing everything I can to extend my life. Nobody should have the right to prolong my death.” The full article can be found at: https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/distinctions-in-end-of-life-decisions/2015/08/28/b34b8f6a-4ce7-11e5-902f-39e9219e574b_story.html
