Death With Dignity Act; Statehouse Update
If you are diagnosed with a terminal illness and your doctor says nothing more can be done, do you believe it should be your right to decide when you die? And do you believe it should be legal for a doctor to prescribe you medication that can can kill you? Physician assisted death, some call it death with dignity others call it assisted suicide, is not legal in Ohio nor in most states. There's a push to change that. We'll talk with the state senator proposing a so-called Ohio Death with Dignity bill, as well as an advocate and an opponent of the measure. And later, Karen Kasler joins us for our weekly statehouse update. Governor John Kasich is calling for common sense gun control.
