Aid in dying or assisted suicide?

Dec 1, 2013

12/13/13 8am -This month we’ll talk about one of the only sure things in life: death.  

  Should terminally ill people be able to choose to die when they’re ready? Should doctors be able to help them? What are people’s legal rights? We'll hear from Barack Wolf at the NM Legislative Health & Human Services Committee, and I’ll talk to Kathryn Tucker, an attorney fighting for the right to aid in dying at Compassion & Choices, and Aja RIggs, a plaintiff in the law suit asserting that New Mexico’s “assisted suicide” law does not apply to aid in dying.  

11/8 8:00am -This month Well Woman Radio will focus on women in business, and changes needed in the way businesses run in order to stay healthy and achieve a healthy economy. 

Is the current business model broken? Can women and men benefit from a different approach? Host Giovanna Rossi talks to Jessica Eaves Mathews, co-author of Wonder Women: How Western Women Will Save the World. 

National Women's Law Center

10/11 8:00am -Health care reform, also known as the Affordable Care Act or "Obamacare", is moving forward with new health coverage enrollment starting in October, and both women and men could have a lot to gain. Women's health advocates say the law impacts women enormously because it's often women who make health care decisions for their families.
