The event creator says
Welcome to the Houston Free Thinkers monthly meeting!

We are a community alliance made up of a wide range of individuals from different backgrounds that come together monthly to find common ground.

We allow discussion of a wide range of ideas, regardless of how controversial. Please respect everyone else's freedom to speak and believe as they choose. Thanks

***Beginning this month we are adding guest speakers to talk to the group about what projects they are working on!***

Guest Speakers:

Cindy Merrill and Penny Shelfer of Texas Death With Dignity

Cindy and Penny formed Texas Death With Dignity Group in 2013. Our Facebook page is End of Life Options in Texas.

Texas Death With Dignity (TXDWD) advocates end of life options and supports an aid in dying statute in Texas. We advocate through presentations, our FB page, media interviews and through news paper opinion articles and Letters to the Editor.

Having personally watched friends and family members experience prolonged suffering during their terminal illness, we advocate so future Texans with terminal illness do not have to suffer their way to death.

Cindy Merrill, JD, was Assistant DA of Harris County from 1984-2000 and has been a tireless proponent of aid in dying for the terminally ill in Texas for many years.

Penny Shelfer is a stage III breast cancer survivor, and advocates aid in dying as a necessary and humane option for terminally ill Texas residents, so they can self determine when enough suffering is enough.
