How to Die in California

As we begin to debate the issue of physician aid-in-dying more and more publicly, there are valid concerns that need to be respected and addressed. Moreover, blunt discussions on the issue of death itself need to be had, by talking with our friends, families and physicians about what a ‘good death’ means for each of us, by planning for the inevitable with our loved ones and our lawyers, and by exploring and expanding alternative end-of-life treatment options like hospice and palliative care. This is what represents the true legacy of women like Brittany Maynard and Betsy Davis.
