Supreme Court nominee Judge Neil Gorsuch once authored a book opposing assisted suicide and euthanasia. With Gorsuch now up for confirmation, the husband of the late Brittany Maynard, a terminally ill woman who fought for the right to die in 2014, is speaking out. “If Neil Gorsuch, or anyone in his position, had seen firsthand what ‘medical aid in dying’ is, he would probably have a much different opinion,” Dan Diaz told me. “And what he wrote in his book would be significantly different had he known my wife, Brittany.”
In an exclusive interview, I spoke with Deborah Ziegler, author of the new book “Wild and Precious Life.” She recounts her personal and profound journey after learning her only child, 29-year-old Brittany Maynard, was diagnosed with terminal brain cancer.
