[Buffalo, NY] Ron Lindsay: Do We Have the Right to Hasten Our Deaths?
Note: This is a global event that appears on all event calendars.
This year Massachusetts voters rejected the Death with Dignity Initiative. The measure would have allowed doctors to prescribe lethal dosages of drugs to terminally ill patients who wanted assistance dying. In fact to this day it is illegal in all but three states for physicians to assist terminally ill patients with ending their lives. So the question arises: Do We Have the Right to Hasten Our Deaths? In his presentation, Dr. Ronald Lindsey (President and CEO of the Center for Inquiry) will explore this topic, examining the legal, societal, and philosophical reasons why we should have the right to end our lives the way we choose.
