More on Pennsylvania's Assisted Suicide Case

Mancini

As I have previously discussed, Barbara Mancini is awaiting trial for allegedly providing her terminally ill father with a vial of morphine in order to assist with his suicide.  The nonprofit organization Compassion & Choices is now campaigning for the Pennsylvania Attorney General to drop the case.

For more information on this controversial case, please see Katherine C. Pearson’s article entitled, Case Watch: Pennsylvania Daughter/Nurse Charged with Unlawful Assisted Suicide in Elderly Father’s Death, found on the Elder Law Prof Blog.
