Story Pitch

The Ethics of Making End-of-Life Medical Decisions
As the health care law comes up for new scrutiny, the cost of end and value of some types of care at the end of life is entering public discussion again. Decisions on end of life medical care are among the most wrenching a family can face. There is, however, an ethical framework that can help patients, families and society think through the hard questions.
