Writing Your Last Chapter: Medical Aid in Dying with Roger Kligler, MD and Melissa Stacy
Compassionate? Controversial? An essential human right? Join Dr. Roger Kligler and Melissa Stacy for a discussion about medical aid in dying for mentally competent, terminally ill adult patients. 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?
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.
