Letter: My Testimony Was Misquoted
To the Editor:
Ed Wendell seriously misquoted me in his Feb. 12 Forum letter. I did not utter the words he attributed to me. In fact, my own mother died suddenly.
I did testify in opposition to legalizing physician-assisted suicide at the Vermont Senate committee hearing. The full text of my testimony is available at www.TheBestCarePossible.org.
