Barbara Mancini Assisted Suicide Case

Pennsylvania nurse Barbara Mancini was prosecuted for allegedly helping her terminally ill, 93-year-old father overdose on a bottle of morphine. While the charges were ultimately dismissed, the prosecution harmed Barbara, her father, her family, hospice patients, and all terminally ill patients.

This morning (Sat), I am discussing the case at the ASBH Annual Meeting in San Diego.  

Tomorrow (Sun), Barbara will discuss the case with Anderson Cooper on 60 Minutes.  

Then, on November 13, Barbara will make a public presentation at Hamline University in Saint Paul.
