Barbara Mancini: Innocent of Assisted Suicide

Hear her cautionary story and what it could mean to you. Barbara Mancini was arrested and prosecuted for “assisting a suicide” in Pennsylvania for simply handing her terminally-ill father his medicine. Her story was featured on 60 Minutes on CBS (see transcript and video (http://www.cbsnews.com/news/ending-life-barbara-mancini-end-of-life-debate/)).

“One important thing I want people to know is that this could happen to you!” — Barbara Mancini
