ALERT: STOP Euthanasia Legalization in New York! -- Contact your State Legislators today!
ALERT:

New York’s medical practitioners have both a moral and professional obligation to provide life-saving services to patients across the state, so any medical practice(s) that prioritize the death of a patient rather than their life should never be on the table.

But, in keeping with a devastating national trend, some members of the New York State Legislature are attempting to legalize euthanasia under the euphemistic guise of "Death with Dignity" legislation.

And if we don't fight back soon, it may very well become the law of the land here in the Empire State.

That is why we're asking YOU to make your voice heard in defense of life and in opposition to Democrat legislators' efforts to legalize physician-assisted suicide in New York.

It’s up to us to contact our State Legislators, both in the Assembly and the Senate, and call on them to reject Assembly Bill (A) 4321, along with its companion Senate Bill (S) 6471, also referred to as the "Medical Aid in Dying Act," which would allow patients deemed terminally ill access to life-ending medicine.

You can contact your State Senator and Assembly Member in one easy step using this simple contact form that LifeSiteNews.com is making available here, on the Voter Voice platform.

With one click, your message is sent directly to your representatives without having to look up any of their contact details.

If either the Assembly bill (A4321) or the Senate bill (S6471) manage to pass both chambers of the New York State Legislature, adults eighteen years or older, who have been diagnosed as "terminally ill" (an irreversible condition that is likely to result in death within six months), would be given the ability to request lethal drugs that would ultimately end their life.

If a patient, indeed, wishes to end their own life, the bill would require that they submit two requests to their physician: one orally, and one in writing.

If the criteria set forth in the bill is met, their request will be granted, and the lethal injection will be administered by the patient him/herself, not their physician or any other health care professional.

A4321 and S6471 have been introduced and are sponsored by more than 60 Democrats from both chambers of the New York State Legislature. It has been referred to the respective Health Committees in both the Assembly and the Senate, and is currently pending review for approval.

It goes without saying that “Death with Dignity” laws like A4321 and S6471 are normalizing a culture of death rather than life across the United States, and we already find ourselves on a slippery slope in terms of some states’ full-out embrace of euthanasia as it is.

Our legislators should be focused on increasing access to alternative methods of care, including palliative and mental health care, instead.

But if either of these bills were to become law in New York (Governor Andrew Cuomo is likely to sign them), rest assured that other states will follow down the same path (nine, as well as the District of Columbia, already have), and America will continue its downward spiral on the issue of life and how our government (and future generations) will measure its value.

New York’s lawmakers (and people like YOU) must stand up for life and take action as soon as possible to defeat this morbid legislation.

Please take a few minutes to contact your State Senator and Assembly Member and request that they oppose A4321 and/or S6471 if and when either comes before them for a vote.

Numerous similar bills that sought to legalize euthanasia have been introduced in New York in recent years, and none have managed to make it through the legislative process successfully.

However, that doesn't mean it will happen again.

Our leaders must stand strongly against any proposed law that advances an American culture of death, and rejecting A4321/S6471 will prove an important step forward in replacing it with a culture of life.

Medical practitioners have a responsibility to help and care for the suffering, not assist in their demise. This must be reaffirmed legislatively.

Thank you for helping deliver this message to them.
