PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — A terminally ill woman who renewed a nationwide debate about physician-assisted suicide has ended her young life with the lethal drugs available under Oregon's Death With Dignity Law. Brittany Maynard was 29.
Maynard, who had brain cancer, died peacefully in her bedroom Saturday "in the arms of her loved ones," said Sean Crowley, a spokesman for the advocacy group Compassion & Choices. (Associated Press)
JG: Thanks to the courageous people of Oregon, you do not have to suffer at the end of your life. It was the last political campaign where I volunteered my labor. We defeated the narrow-minded opponents twice.
