Week 9/2015 in the Death with Dignity Movement


Last week Brittany Maynard’s mother, Debbie Ziegler, appeared on Dr. Oz show (video preview | summary), and husband, Dan Diaz, posted an op-ed in Time magazine. Utah saw a bill introduced. New Hampshire debated a bill establishing a committee to explore end-of-life options. Polls in Maryland and New Jersey showed strong support for bills proposed in those states. The Applied Sentience blog called Death with Dignity a top three political battle this year, as continued debates in California, Connecticut, Massachusetts, and other states demonstrate. And, the artist and Death with Dignity advocate Leonard Nimoy passed away.

These are the highlights of the most important developments in the movement around the United States from February 22 to February 28, 2015, with the corresponding media coverage.
