Disability Rights Advocates Warn of the Dangers of Assisted Suicide

“Disability rights advocates gathered in the state capital [May 29, 2019] to talk about the dangers of controversial assisted suicide practices.”

“The New York Alliance Against Assisted Suicide strongly opposes the law for multiple reasons.”

“They say it gives insurers the ability to deny treatment to the terminally ill, it does not guarantee peaceful or painless death.”

“They also believe it could lead to patients taking their own lives because of what they say is inaccurate prognoses and they say it does not require medical personnel to be present during the time of committing suicide.”
