A Look Into the “Underground World of Assisted Suicide”

In case you missed it–I know I did–PBS aired a piece on assisted suicide last night, which can now be viewed online. According to one description, the “fimmakers . . . take viewers inside the surprisingly coordinated underground world of assisted suicide in the United States.” It sounds like the film might be slanted in favor of the practice (although I have not yet had the opportunity to watch it): “It’s a story told from the perspective of those choosing to end their lives, the activists who put themselves in legal jeopardy by helping others to die, and the law enforcement officials trying to stop the practice that remains illegal in every state except Washington and Oregon.”
