A presentation by Dr. Faye Girsh.
Dr. Girsh is a retired psychologist who became involved in the right to die issue in 1983 after working with a quadriplegic woman who wanted to die by refusing to eat and drink. It couldn't be done then, but it can now. There have been significant steps in achieving choice and dignity at the end of life here and abroad which she will review. Today the Final Exit Network can provide information and support about a hastened death to its members suffering from terminal and chronic illness in their homes at no charge. Dr. Girsh is President of the World Federation of Right to Die Societies, Founder and President of the Hemlock Society of San Diego, and was President of the Hemlock Society USA. She is a Senior Advisor and an Exit Guide for the Final Exit Network.
