Compassionate? Controversial? An essential human right? Should Massachusetts join ten other states and the District of Columbia by passing a bill that would authorize doctors to provide this assistance to their patients in carefully defined circumstances? Our speakers will address these questions and more about medical aid in dying for mentally competent, terminally ill adult patients.
Dr. Kligler is a retired primary care physician, a patient with a terminal illness, and a plaintiff in a suit against the Commonwealth for access to medical aid in dying. Melissa Stacy is the Regional Advocacy Manager-Northeast for Compassion and Choices.
