DUE PROCESS

Sunday, 3/9 at 9:30am & 7pm; Tuesday, 3/11 at 11:30pm

 DEATH WITH DIGNITY End of life.  A time few of us like to think about.  But, for some – those suffering from irreversible illness and a certain, painful end – a peaceful death, by choice, might seem a reasonable choice.

Due Process explores what proponents call a “death with dignity.” A suicide with some gentle assistance.  Should there be an individual right to die – if pain, disease and a body that’s stopped working have made life less than bearable?

Studio guests: Assemblyman John Burzichelli, the ACLU’s Ed Barocas and Seton Hall Law Prof. Kathleen Boozang.
