A terminally ill woman planning to end her life appears to have had a slight change of heart.  Brittany Maynard is now saying she may not choose to die this coming weekend.  The 29-year-old Maynard has an aggressive form of brain cancer.  She and her husband recently moved to Oregon because it's one of only five states where assisted suicide is legal. 

In a video released to CNN Wednesday, Maynard said "it doesn't seem like the right time right now."  She says she still feels well enough to enjoy her family and wants to continue to do that as long as possible.
