How medical aid in dying may change the way we live

Medical aid in dying offers what some may call “a good death”. But how will the increased use of it change our relationship with dying?

Meet a hospice and palliative care consultant who has been present for over 1,500 deaths, and hear his concerns about the effect of so-called “designer deaths” on the human species.

Then, hear from a woman living with terminal cancer who is an enthusiastic advocate for passing Medical aid in dying legislation in Connecticut.


  • Stephen Jenkinson: An author, activist and palliative and hospice care consultant. He is the author of Die Wise: A Manifesto for Sanity and Soul, and he is the founder of the Orphan Wisdom School.
  • Lynda Bluestein: A Bridgeport resident who has terminal cancer. She’s actively working to get “Medical Aid in dying” legislation passed in Connecticut.
