Ask Massachusetts’ lawmakers to reject assisted suicide (H.1926 and S.1208)!

 

“It is unthinkable at the outset of our tenuous Covid reopening that the MA public health committee would devote time to regressive, discriminatory assisted suicide legislation, which is fatally flawed and ripe for abuse, coercion, and mistakes. When care is expensive and suicide is cheap, what message are we sending to our elders, the immune compromised, and people with life-threatening disabilities, who are at the greatest risk of a second wave?  When all of us have sacrificed so much for the sake of those most vulnerable to the virus, it is profoundly obtuse to advance legislation that provides immunity to 3rd parties involved in their suicides.”
