Atheists Talk--Jerry Dincin

Jerry Dincin, "Final Exit Network"
Atheists Talk #0064 Sunday, April 5, 2009

The mission of the Final Exit Network is to serve people who are suffering intolerably from irreversible conditions that have become more than they can bear. The Network was recently raided and their funds confiscated by the State of Georgia under the false accusation that they have been assisting suicide. This is something they most emphatically do not do. Jerry Dincin is the president of the Final Exit Network and is the Minnesota Atheists' scheduled speaker for our April 19th Monthly Members' Meeting.

Jerry will explain the purpose of this educational organization, their goals and the circumstances leading to this false legal accusation. George Kane, the Secretary of the Minnesota Atheists, will ask Jerry for keen insights into the ethics of exit education, the interference into the right-to-die by the religious "moral" organizations and about plans to fight this legal persecution.

Produced by Minnesota Atheists. Interview by George Kane. Hosted by Stephanie Zvan. Directed by Mike Haubrich.

(Recognizing FEN isn't assisting) A relative recently asked me why I'd want assistance at suicide. I answered that it really isn't a do-it-yourself project. If you want a painless exit without leaving relatives to clean up an awful physical and emotional mess, it takes planning and cooperation. In that case, the help of someone who really knows what they're doing is a great mercy.

It's SO obnoxious that religious people, putatively headed for the Pearly Gates, are the biggest opponents to letting individuals decide that for themselves.

I'll definitely grab the mp3 of that talk.
