"When My Time Comes" Preview and Discussion
Judy Woodruff, Anchor and Managing Editor for PBS NewsHour, and Peabody Award-Winning Journalist Diane Rehm will discuss the upcoming film, explore the right-to-die movement in America, and talk about how to have the conversations surrounding end-of-life wishes.
When My Time Comes depicts Diane Rehm’s exploration of the issue of medical aid in dying (MAID). This is an option for terminally ill patients with six months or less to live who are able to make their own medical decisions and meet certain other legally prescribed criteria. Available to over 20% of the U.S. population, it is an option that John Rehm, Diane’s husband of 54 years, wanted before he died in 2014, but could not have.
