Brittany Maynard's Husband Talks About Letting Her Go

FILE - This undated file photo provided by the Maynard family shows Brittany Maynard, a 29-year-old terminally ill woman who planned to die under Oregon's law that allows the terminally ill to end their own lives. The Vatican's top bioethics official calls "reprehensible" the suicide of an American woman suffering terminal brain cancer who stated she wanted to die with dignity. Monsignor Ignacio Carrasco de Paula, the head of the Pontifical Academy for Life, reportedly said Tuesday, Nov. 4, 2014 that "dignity is something other than putting an end to one's own life." Brittany Maynard's suicide in Oregon on Saturday, following a public declaration of her motives aimed at sparking political action on the issue, has stirred debate over assisted suicide for the terminally ill.
