Aid in Dying in New York: Your Right to Choose

September 6 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

 

Executive Director Emeritus and Senior Consultant David Leven of End of Life Choices NY will present a one hour talk entitled   “Aid in Dying in New York: Your Right to Choose” . This speech focuses on aid in dying, the process by which a mentally competent, terminally ill adult patient obtains a prescription of medicines which the patient may ingest to end suffering and achieve a peaceful death. Topics covered include current attempts to legalize aid in dying in New York through legislation or litigation and the experiences of other states in which aid in dying is already legal.
