Tell Congress Assisted Suicide is Not Healthcare

 
Dear Friend,

We have an opportunity to raise our voices against assisted suicide and to remind Congress that it has no place in health care. Cardinal Dolan, Chairman of the USCCB Committee on Pro-Life Activities and Bishop Dewane, Chairman of the USCCB Committee on Domestic Justice and Human Development, have expressed their strong support for H. Con. Res. 80, a resolution expressing the sense of Congress that assisted suicide is a “deadly, discriminatory and non-compassionate practice.”

Please join your voice to theirs to theirs and urge your representative to support the resolution which calls on the Federal Government to reject assisted suicide and to ensure that every person facing death has access to the best quality and comprehensive medical and palliative health care.

The resolution, introduced by Representative Brad Wenstrup, (R-OH) along with a bipartisan group of members states that “the Government has a legitimate interest in prohibiting assisted suicide” and explains how assisted suicide endangers everyone, especially those least able to defend against coercion. The resolution warns that “assisted suicide…puts everyone, including the most vulnerable, at risk of deadly harm and undermines the integrity of the health care system.”

You can read the full text of Cardinal Dolan’s and Bishop Dewane’s letter here.

Please take action today!

Together we will be heard!
