29 Year-old Brittany Maynard took her own life using Oregon’s death with dignity law. She ended her life Saturday by swallowing lethal drugs prepared by her doctors. She became the focus of public and media attention when she and her husband publicized that they transferred from Northern California to Portland, Oregon to exercise the Oregon law. She said that she planned to die on November 1.
Maynard ceased her suffering from a very painful brain cancer right on schedule, despite hinting at a possible delay in a video released last week.
Rest in Peace Brittany!
