Conn. woman 1st non-Vermonter granted assisted suicide right


A woman from Connecticut has become the first non resident granted the right to take advantage of Vermont's assisted suicide law. 75 year old Linda bluestein has terminal cancer. One thing that surprised me about getting this latest terminal diagnosis is just how hard it is to die the way you want to die. It seems like everybody has an opinion on what should be allowed and what shouldn't be allowed. Bluestein lives in Bridgeport, Connecticut, and has reached a settlement with the state of Vermont, she can end her life there as long as she complies with other aspects of the state's assisted suicide law. I care so deeply about how the last moment of my life is going to go. Because I've said goodbye to so many that I've loved, who didn't have a good depth. Bluestein wants to make her death better. Not only for me, but for the people who are going to remember that. For whom that's going to be their last memory of me. Blue Stein is currently undergoing chemotherapy. I'm Ed Donahue
