As modern technology prolongs our lives, a life well-lived can often end with a long and painful struggle. Increasingly there are choices available about end-of-life options that afford greater personal control over the time and manner of death. A "good death" is more likely when medical practitioners and those supporting the dying person are more informed about these options. Join Elliott Schaffer, MD and Susan Schaffer, JD for an hour discussion on the medical, ethical, and legal issues involving Voluntary Stopping of Eating and Drinking, a little known end of life option.
