 2015 UULM-MD Priority Issues

UULM-MD has selected four issue areas as Priority Issues during the 2015 Session of the Maryland General Assembly:

_____________________________

Richard E. Israel and Roger "Pip" Moyer Death With Dignity Act, SB676/HB1021:

The Unitarian Universalist Legislative Ministry of Maryland wholeheartedly supports  SB 676/HB021, entitled the "Death with Dignity Act".  In keeping with the basic civil rights of Marylanders, this bill honors the dignity of the life of an individual.  This bill creates a process by which a “qualified patient” may request and receive “aid in dying” from the patient’s attending physician within strict guidelines. While the bill exempts from civil or criminal liability state-licensed physicians who act in compliance with specified safeguards, it clearly includes criminal penalties for violating the provisions of the bill.  Such protections administer a respectful responsiveness to a clear need within the constituency.

The Washington Post Review, 1/20/2013: "It's easy to see why so many Washingtonians flocked to hear pianist Brian Ganz present an all-Chopin recital Sunday evening at the Music Center at Strathmore."

The Washington Post Review, 7/31/13: "Chopin devotee Brian Ganz is elegant, earnest at Washington International Piano Festival."

Mr. Ganz is widely regarded as one of the leading pianists of his generation.  He has appeared as a soloist with such orchestras as the St. Petersburg Philharmonic, the St. Louis Symphony, the Baltimore Symphony, the National Philharmonic, the National Symphony and the City of London Sinfonia.

Four years ago, Mr. Ganz began his "Extreme Chopin" quest to perform all of Frederic Chopin's works.  His sold out recital at the Music Center at Strathmore launched his ambitious endeavor to perform all 250 of Chopin's works over the next decade.  He will be playing music by Frederic Chopin and Claude Debussy on April 25th. 

This event is in support of UULM-MD and its work to coordinate the advocacy of UUs on specific issues before the Maryland General Assembly.
