Right-to-die group denied booth at aging expo

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (AP) - Visitors browsing the booths at this week's AARP convention on aging in San Diego won't find one featuring Final Exit Network.

U-T San Diego reports (http://bit.ly/1oBue5b ) the national right-to-die group's application for a booth was denied for the expo starting Thursday at the convention center.

The group will still have a presence. Final Exit Network representatives will be outside the convention, providing attendees with information on assisted suicide.

Efforts by the newspaper to get a comment from AARP officials were unsuccessful.

The AARP expo will feature stars like Kevin Spacey and Julia Louis-Dreyfus and offer events covering topics like health, technology, travel and finance.
