Do Californians Have the Right to Die?

Hosted by

In California, assisted suicide is a felony crime.  So, when 29-year-old Brittany Maynard was diagnosed with terminal cancer, she moved to Oregon where it's legal.  Before she died, she made her case public with videos that went viral, advocating that the so-called "the right to die" be made legal in California.  That has reinvigorated a movement and produced  the End of Life bill in the State Senate.
