Conversations: HB 6645: Compassionate Aid in Dying

Rev. Douglas Peary is one of the founding members of the Humanist Association of Connecticut, was its vice-president for many years and took a turn at president in 2000. Raised a conservative Baptist fundamentalist Christian on a Maine potato farm, Doug's spiritual journey led him to become an ordained UU Minister in 1979. In 2004 he published his first book, "Humanist Heroes," a compilation of his very popular presentations and has  since been working on a second volume.

More recently, Doug has become an active advocate for Compassion & Choices, a group that provides education, counseling and advocacy concerning end of life choices. On Saturday, April 6, Doug will discuss details of HB 6645 - legislation currently under consideration in Connecticut that would allow terminally ill, mentally competent patients get a doctor's prescription for medication to end their suffering.
