PLEASE STAND UP FOR WHAT IS RIGHT & SIGN THIS PETITION! Thank you!!! Share With All

In a move that has NATIONAL IMPLICATIONS, the Maryland State House of Delegates disgracefully voted to approve a measure that would legalize Physician Assisted Suicide (PAS).

BUT this bill has not yet passed the Maryland State Senate, where SB311 is still in committee.

So, there is still time to act!

Now, we urgently need to tell the Maryland Senate and Governor (were it to get his desk): SAY NO to PAS. Marylanders can live without it!

Please click on the link below and SIGN this petition, now!

 

SIGN THE PETITION

 

Under the proposed law, doctors would legally be permitted to prescribe lethal doses of drugs which would kill a patient who has been given a six-months-or-less terminal diagnosis.

PAS is always wrong and immoral because it involves killing an innocent human being, but the points enumerated below (taken directly from the ‘Maryland Against Physician Assisted Suicide’ website) emphasize just how irresponsible the proposal actually is:

  • No doctor, nurse, family member or independent witness is required to be present when the lethal dose is taken.
  • There is no requirement that patients receive a psychological evaluation before doctors can authorize physician-assisted suicide. A screening from a doctor untrained in mental health is not sufficient.
  • Accurately predicting a six-month terminal diagnosis is next to impossible – even doctors admit that it is simply an educated guess.
  • Suicide contagion is a real problem that proponents refuse to answer for.
  • PAS is seen as a cost savings measure for insurance companies, including state Medicaid programs.
  • Pain is not even in the top 5 reasons why patients wanted physician-assisted suicide (it’s 6th).
  • Maryland Residents Already Have Excellent End of Life Care Options – including excellent palliative care.

This petition contacts all Maryland State Senators to tell them to OPPOSE this terrible bill both in committee and on the floor (if it gets that far), and Maryland’s Republican Governor, Larry Hogan, who could also VETO the bill (if it lands on his desk)!

Make no mistake: This bill has national implications and is one reason why national PAS organizations have been scheming to pass this legislation for many years in Maryland.

This is not just bad law, it absolutely attacks the elderly and vulnerable!

Thank you for signing this urgent petition now!

Yours faithfully,
Scott Schittl and the whole team at LifeSiteNews
