This information came in from Gary Wederspahn, Indiana Death-with-Dignity news, who spoke at our congregation in June of 2017.

The INDYSTAR reported 4 Jan. 2018:
Lawmaker wants to legalize assisted suicide in Indiana
Rep. Matt Pierce wants to help some Hoosiers choose when they die.
Thursday morning the Bloomington Democrat unveiled the details of a
proposal that would enable individuals with terminal illnesses to
request medication that would give them the option of ending their lives
in a "peaceful, humane manner."

Flanked by aid-in-dying experts and individuals who would be affected by
the legislation, Pierce explained during a news conference that the
assisted-suicide option would be available to people who are facing
"imminent death" within six months.

"I am hopeful the introduction of this bill will begin a discussion
among Hoosiers about this difficult end-of-life issue," Pierce said
about House Bill 1157.

Pierce detailed an extensive process that must be completed before an
individual could choose to die, including several psychological
examinations and a 15-day waiting period.

Corey Polen, a Central Indiana father of three who has ALS, said he
wants to have the option to die due to his diagnoses.

"Even Timothy McVeigh was put to death compassionately by the state,"
Polen said, "but Indiana wants me to die a tortuous death in front of my
children and my sweetheart."

"My future is not a nice one," he said.

The Indiana Alliance Against Assisted Suicide did not immediately
respond to IndyStar requests for comment.

Bev Murovic, head of end-of-life health-care advocacy group Compassion &
Choices Indiana, spoke about Oregon as a model for assisted-suicide.
"More people die in their homes in Oregon than any other state," she
said, adding that the No. 1 reason people choose the method of death is
"autonomy and control" over their lives.

This is not the first time Pierce has submitted a bill on end-of-life
matters.

University of St. Francis Lecture Series

January 3, 2018, 7:00pm - January 3, 2018, 8:00pm

A lecture titled "American Inequality" by Dr. Weston Cutter, Associate Professor of English at the University of St. Francis About the Lecture: “Since the end of the 1970s, the United States has either plateaued or slowly lost the ground it gained in combating inequality among different races, among genders, and among socioeconomic status. We've currently returned to levels of wealth disparity not seen since the 1920s. Simultaneously, we continue to hear, year after year, that women make on average only 84 cents on the dollar compared with men. And, of course, in the midst of all of that, we continue to see minorities making up a disproportionate percentage of the prison population. In this lecture, I'll talk about some of the historical precedents that have allowed for the system to function the way it does today. Beyond that, I'll explore some of the ways that the system is *still* not quite equal, and, hopefully, present some ways we can all work to make it more equitable, to make the American Dream in reach for all of us.” This lecture is part of our University of Saint Francis Lecture Series, the first Wednesday of each month at our Aboite Branch. All lectures are free and open to the public.
