Whose Choice Is Death?

Event Description:
A Ford Hall Forum event.

Featuring Guy Maytal, M.D. (Associate Director of Ambulatory Psychiatry, MGH) and Marcia Angell, M.D. (Senior Lecturer in Social Medicine, Harvard Medical School). Moderated by Ford Hall Forum Vice President Jack Wrobel.

With the vote on the physician-assisted suicide initiative coming down to a slim margin this past November, voters of Massachusetts appear torn. Is this dignity or playing God? Mercy or giving up too soon? Does it give people who are suffering a way to control their own destinies, or people with hidden agendas a way to do away with the vulnerable? And how soon will this issue arise again in our state? Jack Wrobel, Ford Hall Forum Vice President, moderates a debate that elucidates the issue from each side. Marcia Angell, M.D. and Guy Maytal, M.D. discuss facts, feelings, and unintended effects while the audience decides for themselves whether physician-assisted suicide should ever be Massachusetts law.

Presented by the Ford Hall Forum at Suffolk University. Free and open to the public. Reserve your space here. For more information, please visit
