Maggie Karner addresses the East Coast Conference Against Assisted Suicide (photo by Ellen Kolb).   I suppose you could say that Brittany Maynard and I became the overnight internet brain cancer poster children on either side of the assisted suicide debate.   Within a few days of writing an opinion article for The Federalist and The Hartford Courant opposing […]
