Senate Bill 25 and House Bill 1054 seek to legalize physician assisted suicide. Any law allowing assisted suicide would demean the lives of vulnerable patients and expose them to exploitation by those who feel they are better off dead. Such a policy would corrupt the medical profession, whose ethical code calls on physicians to serve life and never to kill. The voiceless or marginalized in our society – the poor, the frail elderly, and racial minorities would be the first to feel pressure to die.
The Colorado Catholic Conference OPPOSES SB 25 and HB 1054.
SB 25 will be heard in the Senate State Veterans and Military Affairs Committee on Wednesday, February 3 at 1:30 p.m., in Senate Committee Room 356. Committee listed below.
HB 1054 will be heard in the House Judiciary Committee on Thursday, February 4th at 1:30 p.m., in House Committee Room 271. Committee listed below.
Please contact your State Representative and State Senator as well as the House Judiciary Committee and the Senate State Veterans and Military Affairs Committee and ask them to OPPOSE Senate Bill 25 & House Bill 1054 which would legalize physician assisted suicide in Colorado.
