Barbara Mancini lives in Philadelphia, PA with her husband and two daughters.

She has been a nurse for over three decades.

In 2013 she was arrested and prosecuted in Pennsylvania on the charge of aiding the attempted suicide of her dying 93-year old father after handing him his prescribed morphine four days before his death.

A hospice nurse and police ignored his written advanced directives, and he was then hospitalized and treated in defiance of his end-of- life wishes.

Barbara’s prosecution lasted a year, during which time it garnered national attention, and it was roundly criticized throughout the media.

A judge dismissed the case due to “a lack of competent evidence.”

She was interviewed about her case on NPR radio and TV’s 60 Minutes, and presented in a forum at the Cato Institute in Washington DC. She has become a vocal advocate for better care and more end-of- life options. She will discuss her case and the implications for all who are facing end of life decisions.
