Death with Dignity

Thursday on “Faith Matters,” our quarterly program that addresses issues through a faith perspective,  hosts Kyle Reese from Hendricks Avenue Baptist Church and Nancy Bronner, executive director of OneJax, discussed death with dignity. National healthcare organizations increasingly support medical aid in dying and reject the terms “suicide” and “assisted suicide” to describe it.  The national debate is growing, and six states have now made it legal for doctors to help terminally ill patients end their lives.  Fifteen additional states are considering similar legislation.
