    California has become the fifth U.S. state to legalize assisted suicide.

    According to Gallup, support is growing for assisted suicide among U.S. adults. Nearly seven in 10 Americans say doctors should be legally allowed to assist terminally ill patients in committing suicide. Nonetheless, many remain committed to banning the practice.

    On this edition of Looking Forward the co-hosts Svetlana Ekimenko and Victor Erofeyev are joined by Jason Negri, Assistant Director of the Patients’ Rights Council to ponder  the assisted suicide debate.
