California’s Right-To-Die Law Sparks Reaction
Kaiser Health News

Scott Shafer of KQED and The California Report hosted a special radio broadcast on California’s landmark aid-in-dying law. The issue gained national attention last year after Brittany Maynard, who suffered from terminal brain cancer, moved from California to Oregon in order to be able to end her life legally with drugs prescribed by a physician.

Shafer interviewed KQED health reporter April Dembosky, advocates and opponents of the law, and Dan Diaz, the husband of Maynard.
