Writer C. Krauthammer reviews the one hour documentary entitled “Choosing Suicide” that was aired on PBS on June 16, 1980. New York artist Jo Roman planned her suicide after learning she had breast cancer. The author finds her suicide pathetic & contrary to what Roman would have wanted-meaningless. (NBB)
