Bill Colby on The Right To Die


Here's my conversation with Bill Colby, who was the attorney for Nancy Cruzan's family in the first right-to-die case heard at the Supreme Court. He fought the state of Missouri so Nancy's parents could remove her feeding tube when she was in a persistent vegetative state. Bill's new book, "Unplugged: Reclaiming Our Right To Die In America," discusses that case, the Terri Schiavo debacle last year, and related cases (e.g. Christine Busalacchi).
