Brittany Maynard Commits Suicide [VIDEO]

Brittany Maynard, the terminally ill woman who gained fame over the last few weeks with her public decision to end her life, died Saturday at home in Portland, Oregon. “Goodbye to all my dear friends and family that I love,” she wrote on Facebook. “Today is the day I have chosen to pass away with dignity in the face of my terminal illness, this terrible brain cancer that has taken so much from me… but would have taken so much more.” Diagnosed with a likely stage 4 glioblastoma, the 29-year-old Maynard was told last spring that she had six months to live and moved to Oregon to take her life with a fatal dose of barbiturates under the state’s Death with Dignity Act.
