Contact Your Legislators to Oppose Assisted Suicide

On Monday, March 12, the Assembly Judiciary Committee released the Aid in Dying for the Terminally Ill Act (A1504).  The bill will now be voted on by the General Assembly.  The bill would allow physicians to prescribe drugs to end the lives of terminally ill individuals considered to have six months to live.
 
The facts are clear - in California, in Vermont and in Oregon - states that have passed assisted suicide bills - insurance companies have denied individuals expensive healthcare coverage but offered them low cost drugs to end their life.
 
In an era of cost control and managed care, patients with lingering illnesses may be branded as a financial liability for the insurance company, and decisions to encourage death could be driven by reducing costs. 
  
Please contact your state legislators and tell them that you oppose A1504/S1072.
