A few weeks ago, the issue of advance VSED (voluntarily stopping eating and drinking) was highlighted in the New York Times. This week, the topic was also addressed by NPR. And Robin Marantz Henig, who has done a superb job covering other bioethics issues, is doing a piece for the New York Times Magazine.
The issue of advance VSED is important, yet remains unsettled and under-analyzed. Hopefully, this attention will spur more thoughtful analysis and guidance.
