John Kelly: Incredible presentation explaining why the disability community opposes assisted suicide.

Alex Schadenberg
Executive Director - Euthanasia Prevention Coalition.

John Kelly, the New England Regional Director for the disability rights group, Not Dead Yet and the leader of Second Thoughts Massachusetts made an incredible presentation to the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine (Health and Medicine division).

Kelly spoke at the workshop - Physician-Assisted Death: Scanning the Landscape and Potential Approaches.

Kelly's presentation is less than 17 minutes and yet he thoroughly explains why assisted suicide should not be legalized and why assisted suicide threatens the lives of people with disabilities, and others. 

I encourage everyone to watch this presentation.
