Aid-In-Dying display to go back up for a week

HARTFORD, Conn. – A photo display of aid-in-dying supporters that was taken down last month after complaints from House Minority Leader Lawrence Cafero (R-Norwalk) will be going back up Thursday morning.

Unbeknownst to Compassion & Choices, the organization that put up the display in the concourse between the Legislative Office Building and the state Capitol, the ACLU took up their cause with the Office of Legislative Management.

In a letter to Legislative Management, ACLU Attorney David McGuire, said he was concerned the display came down “because of objections to the viewpoint that the advertising expresses.”

“The First Amendment to the United States Constitution prohibits such viewpoint discrimination regardless of whether the area in question is a limited public forum, as we believe it to be, or a nonpublic forum,” McGuire wrote.
