Today at Noon: Margaret Dore and David Leven Debate Assisted Suicide/Euthanasia


Dore: “The New York bill is sold as assuring patient choice and control. The bill is instead stacked against the patient and a recipe for elder abuse.”

Contact: Margaret Dore 
(206) 697-1217

Hempstead, NY – Attorney Margaret Dore, president of Choice is an Illusion, which has fought assisted suicide/euthanasia legalization efforts in many states and now New York, made the following statement in connection with “Euthanasia or Aid in Dying? You Decide,” a debate today at noon,  Hofstra University Club, 225 Hofstra Boulevard, Hempstead, NY 11550.

“The debate will address a bill pending before the New York State Legislature, which seeks to legalize ‘Aid in Dying,’ a traditional euphemism for assisted suicide and euthanasia," said Dore. "The term implies that ‘eligible’ persons are near death, but such persons may have years,even decades, to live.” (Bill A. 2383/S. 3151)

The ADA: A Gift From the Disability Community to the Non-Disabled, Improving Access for All

"This elevator is a gift from the disability
 community and the ADA to the nondisabled
 people of New York," said civil rights
Sid Wolinsky. 
From NPR's Joseph Shapiro, published last year.

When the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) became law 25 years ago, "everybody was thinking about the iconic person in a wheelchair," says civil rights lawyer Sid Wolinsky. Or that the ADA — which bans discrimination based on disability — was for someone who is deaf, or blind.

But take a tour of New York City with Wolinsky — and the places he sued there — and you will see how the ADA has helped not just people with those significant disabilities, but also people with minor disabilities, and people with no disability at all.
