A 29-year-old woman with terminal brain cancer is campaigning for expanded assisted dying laws in the US before she plans to end her life next month.
After being diagnosed this year with an aggressive tumour, Brittany Maynard relocated with her husband to Oregon, which has a death-with-dignity law.
They moved from their home in the San Francisco Bay area because California is not one of the five US states that can help terminally ill people to die.

Only Oregon, Washington, Montana, Vermont and New Mexico currently have such laws on the books. But Ms Maynard says not everyone in her predicament has the resources to uproot to another state. She has launched an online video campaign for Compassion & Choices, an end-of-life non-profit organisation.

Ms Maynard plans to take a pill provided by doctors that will allow her to die painlessly in the bedroom of her new marital home in Portland.
She has chosen 1 November because it follows the birthday of her 42-year-old husband, Dan Diaz, whom she wed two years ago.
Ms Maynard says she will die surrounded by her loved ones, with her favourite music playing in the background.
