sstdscddwmnBy Faith News Note;

Brittany Maynard, the 29-year old new bride who gained national attention for coming to Oregon to utilize the state’s assisted suicide law ended her life this weekend. She came to Oregon from California because she had an aggressive form of brain cancer and Oregon is one of the few states with an assisted suicide law.

The case prompted discussion both nationally and locally. Just this weekend The Oregonian ran a story by a former Oregonian woman who faced the same choice with her husband 30 years ago. The Oregon Archbishop issued a statement last week on the issue. Even just weeks ago, Oregon and Pennsylvania were featured in an assisted suicide news story on 60 minutes.
