Judith Bishop – Medically Assisted Suicide – Dying with Dignity

Judith Bishop breaks down the misconceptions of legalized assisted suicide for the terminally ill.

Judith spent her career as a midwife, helping bring countless babies into the world.  Although she retired, she was not done helping families.  Now she helps them in a different way, she volunteers to aid individuals who are terminally ill with ending their life through legalized assisted suicide.

We discuss Brittany Maynard, a young woman, who brought the difficult subject matter to the forefront when she was diagnosed with terminal cancer and decided it was the right decision for her and for her family.  The country followed her story as she was forced to move to Oregon in order to do it legally.

Judith brings humanity to this very hot button issue, allowing us a behind the scenes look at the doctors and patients behind the headlines.  Some might not agree with what she does, or those who choose to do it, but it’s an incredible story worth listening to and learning from.
