    Death With Dignity

Brittany Maynard chose to Die With Dignity instead of facing a painful and incurable brain cancer. Maynard was a spokeswoman who advocated for the “death with dignity” movement, which allows terminally ill patients to receive medication that will let them die at their choosing.

Texas State University Philosophy Professor Nevitt Reesor said everyone has different opinions when it comes to the act.

“If a person’s life is going to be in unremitting pain… It’s my personal view that the person should have the right to terminate their life,” Reesor said.

Reesor believes Maynor decided to die with dignity because she was able to die on her own terms while she still had full control of her faculties.

Only five states allow patients to seek help in dying from doctors. Reesor said Texas would not allow physician-assisted suicide for political reasons.
