 On Friday's Up to Date, we're broadcasting live from the Kansas City University of Medicine & Biosciences. We talk with bioethicist Margaret Battin about making your wishes known, right-to-die issues and the sticky legal situation that surrounds euthanasia. We also explore her personal experience with these issues, which arose when her husband was suddenly paralyzed in a biking accident.
