06 Oct Assisted Suicide Advocates Deliver Petitions To NY Governor
Opponents of the practice, which they call assisted suicide, include the Catholic Church and some groups that support those with disabilities. Kathleen Gallagher, with the Catholic conference says she believes it’s “dangerous to many vulnerable populations here in New York.”
“Including the elderly, people with disabilities, the poor,” Gallagher said.
She says last year, parishioners in just one Catholic diocese in the state, in Rochester, delivered more than 12,000 signatures to Governor Cuomo opposing the concept.
