I didn’t say in the responses, but you can share with the students,

that in additional to the new book on Victim Advocacy in the Courtroom, I

have been working with a team of researchers on right-to-die

decision-making. The team includes (along with me) a health care lawyer who

heads the ethics committee at a large local medical center, a bioethicist

and nurse, and a family social science PhD student. Together we have

researched law cases post-Terri Schiavo, done a textual analysis of 129 DNR

requests for developmentally delayed state wards who are in the last stage

of life, and interviewed state and private guardians who make end-of-life

decisions for their clients or wards–all to discover what language and

principles are at work. Anyway, I found the students’ comments very

thoughtful and well-informed. Mary
