The Health Care Committee on Beacon Hill has until June 30 to decide whether to send the the pending doctor-prescribed suicide bill (H.1991) to the floor for a vote. I will be contacting you next week about calling the Chairs of the Committee to urge them to vote against sending out the bill.
Please answer your phone and watch your email next week. Defeating DPS is mandatory!
Here is an excellent letter on DPS by Gabriel Greenspan which appeared in The Berkshire Eagle Tribune, with an excerpt below:
If everyone is inherently valuable, as most people claim to believe, then how is it a more rational decision for someone approaching the end of their life to kill themselves than it is for an 18-year-old college student, even if it is only six months? To say that it is more rational for one person to end their life than another is discrimination, and to protect one person from ending their life and not another is also discrimination.
