Check out this email we sent to our supporters in New York’s Lower Hudson Valley:
If you want the freedom to make end-of-life decisions for yourself, based on your values, please join me for a panel event in Scarsdale. On April 25, Compassion & Choices will participate in a panel discussion on aid in dying hosted by The Journal News.
The panel will include Stacey Gibson, our Lower Hudson Action Team leader, as well as Assemblywoman Amy Paulin, a sponsor of aid-in-dying legislation, and David Leven, director of End of Life Choices New York. But the panel will also include three fervent opponents of medical aid in dying. We need supporters of expanded end-of-life options like you in attendance to support our panelists.
WHAT: The Journal News panel on medical aid in dying
WHERE: Scarsdale Public Library, 54 Olmsted Rd, Scarsdale
WHEN: Monday, April 25 at 7:00 p.m.
A strong showing of supporters would make clear that momentum is building in New York for expanded end-of-life options. Your attendance is important to show lawmakers and faith leaders from across the state that there is broad support for legislation authorizing medical aid in dying for those who suffer needlessly at the end of life.
Opponents are sure to be a visible presence at the meeting. Let’s work together to demonstrate that most New Yorkers want the freedom to make end-of-life decisions according to their values. Our supporters across the country have worn our iconic yellow t-shirts to stand out in the crowd; you can help highlight our numbers by wearing yellow to the event. We will also have shirts available for those who arrive early.
