Family Institute of Connecticut is pleased to announce that Stephen Mendelsohn, of Second Thoughts Connecticut, will be FIC’s 2014 Charles Stetson Awardee at our October 2nd 25th Anniversary Banquet. The award is given each year at our annual banquet to whomever has shown the most courage in pro-family battles over the previous 12 months.

It was Second Thoughts Connecticut, the disability rights group, that played a key role in the defeat of bills that would have legalized assisted suicide in Connecticut in 2013 and again in 2014. In honoring Stephen Mendelsohn, FIC intends to honor all people with disabilities who helped us defeat assisted suicide.

It was Stephen Mendelsohn who made such a powerful speech at the Second Thoughts press conference that FIC promoted last Spring. Click here to see Stephen’s speech, here to see highlights of the press conference and, most of all, here to see Stephen’s face-off with pro-assisted suicide Sen. Gary Holder-Winfield. Stephen is pictured in the photograph above, testifying against the 2014 assisted suicide bill.
