$1,000,000 in Boston to push Doctor-Prescribed Suicide!

Well, not quite a million - only $900,000
When we talk about out-of-state groups spending big bucks to force Massachusetts to make doctors and all of us complicit in people killing themselves, this is what we mean.
This is how the death lobby will spend the night before the hearings at the State House.  They have to raise big bucks because they have to pay all the "activists" they have hired.  You can be sure that Dan Diaz and Barbara Mancini will testify - probably with VIP treatment
OCT 27, 1;00pm - 5:00 pm
Wonder who is doubling each donation?  Speculation claims his initials are G.S.
The stickers are at the printers.  Be sure to come on the 27th.  Anne

Benefit Jeffersonian Dinner with Dan Diaz, whose late wife, Brittany Maynard, became the Face of the National Death with Dignity Movement
Monday, October 26th, 6PM at a lovely private home
Tax Deductible donation of $2,500 / person requested – which will be doubled by an anonymous donor for a total impact of $7,500
What is a "Jeffersonian Dinner"? Approximately twelve individuals gather for an evening of food and shared conversation with a purpose of discussing one issue. The purpose is to encourage dialogue among the guests with one person serving as the moderator and facilitator. This is the 5th time Compassion & Choices' has hosted a dinner of this type. Guests commented that it was one of the most interesting gatherings they'd ever attended and were pleasantly surprised by how much they enjoyed examining a topic they'd never discussed in a social setting that some might think taboo or uncomfortable. You can watch a Ted Talk about it by an officer at Monticello: www.tinyurl.com/TJDinner
Dan Diaz is the husband of Brittany Maynard, who died in November 2014 from a brain tumor. The couple moved from California to Oregon – one of five states that has authorized medical aid in dying. Dan advocates for expanding the availability of end-of-life options for terminally ill individuals and has partnered with the non-profit organization Compassion & Choices. As a result of Brittany's story, legislators have introduced bills to authorize medical aid in dying in 24 states and Washington DC.
Barbara Mancini lives in Philadelphia, PA with her husband and two daughters. She has been a nurse for over three decades. In 2013 she was arrested and prosecuted in Pennsylvania on the charge of aiding the attempted suicide of her dying 93-year old father after handing him his prescribed morphine four days before his death. A hospice nurse and police ignored his written advanced directives, and he was then hospitalized and treated in defiance of his end-of-life wishes. Barbara's prosecution lasted a year, during which time it garnered national attention, and it was roundly criticized throughout the media. A judge dismissed the case due to "a lack of competent evidence." She was interviewed about her case on NPR radio and CBS's 60 Minutes and has become a vocal advocate for expanded end-of-life options. She looks forward to being in conversation with you, discussing her case and the implications for everyone who will face end of life decisions.
