There is a stigma around doctors who assists patients in ending their lives. But when death is inevitable, should there be an established protocol to ease suffering? Katie Engelhart is a fellow at New America, and she joins host Krys Boyd to talk about the doctors who assist patients with their own deaths and the tightrope they walk in doing so. Her article “‘I’m the Doctor Who Is Here to Help You Die’” was published in The Atlantic.
