Tonight Hemlock Society, Assisted Suicide
Tonight (Tuesday July 23) 7:00 at the Vernon Manor Hotel Cindy Kerkoff, President of Hemlock Society of Ohio will speak. "The mission of Hemlock of Ohio is to maximize the options for a dignified death, including voluntary physician aid in dying for mentally competent, terminally ill adults who request it, in the context of legal safeguards."

The Supreme Court in 1997 found "no constitutional right to die with the help of a physician, and upheld state bans on assisted suicide." Legal issues, broader issues, and media coverage can be readily found on the web.
