Prof. Wolf Blogs on Harvard's 'Bill of Health' about Dying in America

Professor Susan Wolf is blogging on Harvard Law School's "Bill of Health" about dying in America. Her post, entitled "Dying: Closing the Gap Between What We Know & What We Do" (with Nancy Berlinger and Bruce Jennings) argues that decades of work to fix end-of-life care have failed to make the progress needed. The Canadian Supreme Court's Feb. 6 decision in Carter v. Canada finds patients still experiencing intolerable suffering and finally throws in the towel, legalizing "physician aid in dying" in Canada.
