Fourth five news was selected, published between the periods 2000 to 2003, which had focused on the process of dying from a database consisting of 531 articles on bioethics taken from the newspaper Folha de São Paulo. The data was analyzed using the Alcest program. The analyzed coverage presented three thematic areas of production of meaning: Questions about cryogenics, Prolongation on life in terminally and Practical and axiological contours of individual autonomy. We emphasize that the ways to die than issue of circulation appear linked to the ways of thinking about the relationship with the time.
