Medical Aid in Dying Video: An end-of-life option in Vermont that many want to know more about.
Al Gillotti, husband of UU member Susan Gillotti, chose to hasten his death in September 2018 when his brain tumor returned and he did not want further surgery or radiation. Vermont’s Act 39, medical aid in dying, allows Vermont residents to choose this option when there is a prognosis of six months or less to live and one is able to self-administer. Al asked Rev. Jan and Phil and Claudia Kern, UU members, to be present with Susan. In June 2019 Patient Choices Vermont, a non-profit educational organization, asked Susan if she would be willing to describe the experience. Jan and Phil joined her for the taping. A seven-minute video of the interview was released on November 5, 2019 and can be seen at patientchoices.org (click on “stories” and then on “videos”) or by googling “Al Gillotti VT”.
