  • Have you thought about what choices you or your loved ones may have to make before you die? Most people do not. But if you had to choose between suffering or ending your life on your terms, would you? Voluntarily Stopping Eating and Drinking (“VSED”) is a necessary option in an individual’s end-of-life care. VSED, vastly different from assisted suicide or medical aid in dying, is neither legal nor illegal in Ohio. This lack of guidance from the Ohio legislature leaves families and physicians in the dark as to what their legal options are. This article discusses the historical, common law right to refuse medical treatment, the advances that the law and medicine have made to ensure the right to refuse medical treatment is protected, the striking difference between the option of VSED versus Medical Aid in Dying (“MAID”), and a proposal to help physicians and palliative caregivers navigate the fine line of recognizing VSED as a viable end-of-life option., Student at Capital University Law School, Voluntarily Stopping Eating and Drinking as a Viable End-of-Life Option in Ohio, Volume 47 of the Capital University Law Review, Health Law, 2019
