This is BIG!

Dr. Jacob M. Appel, a renowned Bioethicist and a physician at Mt. Sinai Hospital, has agreed to speak to the Libertarian Party of Queens County on Saturday, February 11, 2012 from 10:30 a.m. to 12 noon at Bohemian Hall (in the downstairs Cellar Cafe) with respect to the issues of Polygamy, Incent & Bestiality and how they should be addressed in a Culture of Liberty.

Carl Person, a candidate for the Libertarian Party's Presidential Nomination, recently classified "bestiality" as a victimless crime and many members of the Libertarian Party (the Party of Principle) blasted his position as anti-libertarian - but is it? Dr. Appel will address these issues and answer questions you may have. There is no greater expert in the field than Dr. Appel.

Appel, MD, JD, MPhil, MFA, is a professional bioethicist who contributes frequently to such academic publications as The Hastings Center Report, The Journal of Medical Ethics, The Journal of Clinical Ethics, The Cambridge Quarterly of Healthcare Ethics and The Bulletin of the History of Medicine.

He also writes regular bioethics columns for The Huffington Post and Opposing Views.
