Our fight to keep assisted suicide out of Maryland continues in 2020!
Despite being defeated in their efforts every year, proponents of physician-assisted suicide have again introduced their dangerous bill in 2020.
We need your help to ensure that this bill is defeated yet again.
The bill (HB 643 / SB 701) is the exact same deeply flawed legislation that our state lawmakers have rejected over and over again. It ignores the numerous valid concerns our coalition has raised with this bill, remains unethical, discriminatory and a danger to so many people in Maryland. HB 643 / SB 701 also rejects all the efforts Maryland legislators made in 2019 to make the legislation less dangerous — even though those changes still failed to protect vulnerable populations.
We know the out-of-state groups behind physician-assisted suicide are out of touch with the people and leaders of our state. On Wednesday, Maryland Matters reported that there is not enough support in the Senate for the bill to pass!
While that is a welcome sign for the future of this bill in 2020, it does not mean our work is done!
We need you to reach out to the members of Maryland General Assembly who stood against this misguided policy last year and ask them to continue to stand strong.
Please take a moment right now and send the lawmakers who stood up against this bill a message! Click the button below to write to them today!
The well-funded out-of-state groups pushing this bill continue to pour their resources into Maryland, but together, we can ensure our state remains a place where people facing terminal illnesses get the care and actual compassion they deserve, not ill-conceived policies that threaten the welfare of Marylanders.
Thank you for being with us in this fight!
