Emotions Take Over During Assisted Suicide Interview

By Chris Ariens 

Beyond ISIS, Ebola and the midterms there’s another story playing out this week: the story of 29-year-old Brittany Maynard who plans to end her own life on Nov. 1. Maynard has stage four brain cancer. Doctors says she has 6 months to live. Maynard and her husband moved from California to Oregon, where assisted suicide is legal.

This afternoon on CNN, an emotional Brooke Baldwin talked with Stan Curtis, an Oregon man whose wife chose to end her life 5 years ago. As the interview shows, whether you believe a person should be able to choose the date of their death or not, it’s an agonizing decision for all involved.
