Breaking News: Senate Votes to Defeat PAS!

Posted on

We have some great news to share with you: The Senate voted to defeat the physician-assisted suicide bill, which effectively stops the bill for this year! The final vote was 23-23, meaning it could not advance.

This would not have been possible if it weren’t for all of the help and support that you contributed over the past few months. As we have said time and time again, there is no more effective way to influence legislation than to contact your legislators directly. And that is exactly what you did!

This is a great victory for everyone who fought so hard to educate Maryland legislators about why physician-assisted suicide is unnecessary, dangerous, and wrong for our residents. Together we showed that, even though this is an extremely controversial issue, when legislators really learn about the details of this proposal, and especially its lack of safeguards for our most vulnerable residents, they see that it should not pass.  That’s why we succeeded.

Thank you all for your hard work to defeat the bill! This result would not have been possible without you.
