Humanist Society of the Suncoast

Your Rights on Departure

This month with the aid of President Donna Klamm of Florida Hemlock, we will get a better understanding of the current state of the rights of dying people to control the conditions of their life.

Possible singularity not withstanding, death is for now, the certain outcome for all of us. However, in a society tightly bound to traditional and mostly religious, habits on how this inevitable part of life is to be treated, newer and more humane possibilities are still not available.
Our guest speaker this month will explore the practical, political, and philosophical angles to the last question we may ever have.

    Learned a lot about the state of end-of-life issues in this state and the nation. Advance directive packets were provided, along with good information on practical matters. This is an important matter of human compassion and concern.

    I agree that speaker seemed to lack in-depth knowledge of legal points. A clearer thumb nail sketch of the organization itself would have been welcome.
    I eschew "negativity" when used as an end all. "Personal put downs" usually only highlight the vacuity of a speaker. In that light, I have to say that I did not find the wholly gratuitous personal comments about Dr. Kevorkian to be appropriate.
    But, pls continue invitations to speakers re diverse issues.

    An interesting topic for Humanists but speaker seemed to lack an in-depth knowledge on the legal issues and nothing on how people can get involved in the Florida Hemlock Society or what can be done to change the current status quo!

    No new info at this lecture, and nothing about the society itself. Lunch afterwards was a pleasure.

    As usual very good topic that does not have to be in the back burner of our mind.

    I will raise from the dead my compatriot Socrates to tell us his experience with hemlock.
