A Friends at the End talk by Dr Ellen Wiebe, a Medical Aid in Dying…
58 year old Kelly Bone, with early onset Alzheimer’s, discusses her plans to go to a clinic for euthanasia.
One of the requirements for all of the US medical aid in dying laws is mental capacity; Alzheimer’s patients cannot use medical aid in dying laws.
She mentions her attorney’s comments about the difficulty of getting a Do Not Resuscitate (DNR) order enforced if one has a cognitive deficiency.
She has been rejected by over 400 clinical trials due to a previous cancer and having a pacemaker.
