A Colorado lawmaker is proposing a bill to legalize assisted suicide in our state. Sadly, this practice targets the terminally ill, the disabled, and elderly with death as opposed to medical care.
Colorado should not turn doctors into killers!
When other nations have legalized assisted suicide, that has quickly turned into euthanasia. This is already happening in the Netherlands and Belgium where the mentally ill are being euthanized and even children.
In Oregon, depressed people have died by assisted suicide, and patients, who were denied medical treatment, were steered to assisted suicide by the state health plan. Oregon resident Jeanette Hall, who was terminally ill and wanted assisted suicide, is alive today because her doctor convinced her to try medical treatment.
We must stand up for life in Colorado and true dignity for the elderly, ill and disabled means rejecting assisted suicide!
After you have signed, PLEASE share on Facebook and tweet on Twitter!
We, the undersigned, strongly oppose assisted suicide and urge the Colorado legislature to reject this bill to legalize it.
The Don't Legalize Assisted Suicide in Colorado petition to Colorado legislators was written by LifeNews.com and is in the category Politics at GoPetition.
