The voice and face of Brittany Maynard put Oregon's assisted suicide law front and center once again. 

Maynard was just the latest in long line of people to use the law. 

But her age, 29, and the fact that she moved to Oregon to use the law, made her case stand out. 

Death With Dignity laws are still rare. 

We talk with Peg Sandeen, the Executive Director of the Death With Dignity National Center about the progress of the movement.
