Barbara Mancini at the Ludington Library, Thursday April 14 at 7pm

On ThursdayApril 142016 The Freethought Society will host Barbara Mancini at the Ludington Library, 5 South Bryn Mawr Avenue, Bryn MawrPennsylvania 19010.

The presentation entitled “Who gets to decide how you will die?” starts at 7:00 PM.

In 2013 Mancini 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. His end-of-life wishes were overridden by a hospice nurse and police authorities. His written advanced directives were also ignored and he was hospitalized and treated. Mancini’s prosecution lasted a year, during which time it garnered national attention, and was roundly criticized throughout the media.

A judge dismissed the case due to “a lack of competent evidence.”

Mancini’s case was featured on National Public Radio and TV’s 60 Minutes. She has traveled the country speaking about her experiences and has become a vocal advocate for end-of-life  choice. Mancini will discuss her case, the broader issues involved, and the impact they have on the end of our lives.
