Oppose Assisted Suicide
As we’ve seen in the debates over Charlie Gard and our Medicaid system, this would quickly become a way for insurance companies and big governments to cut costs by encouraging the disabled, depressed, and elderly to end their lives prematurely.
The legislation itself is highly flawed, and our legislators should tell committee members and the leadership they don’t want it passed.
To add fuel to the fire, the time to end each legislative session is July 31st but unscrupulous legislators on Beacon Hill have voted to extend indefinitely the time to vote on this bill. Of particular concern, is any attempt to vote on this after the election because it will be too late to hold legislators accountable for their votes. We need our legislators to end the session before the November 3rd election day.
Physician-assisted suicide failed at the ballot box in 2012, but our legislators want to keep pushing for it. We need to continue to show legislators that the public opposes it. Please send a message to urge your legislators to reject it.
