Bus in to Boston to Oppose Doctor Prescribed Death

This week, your participation is imperative.

The grisly anti-life bills s1209/h3320, which you testified against last Monday are joined by a bill pushing doctor prescribed death. 

This is what you can do:

Speak to the Joint Committee on Public Health directly. 

The hearing THIS TUESDAY on doctor-prescribed suicide is literally a matter of life and death.

It is so important that Stephanie Packer and Dr Brian Callister are flying in.

But who are Stephanie and Dr. Callister?

Stephanie is the young mother of four from California who was diagnosed with cancer right after the CA DPS law went into effect in 2015.  Her insurance company offered to give her a lethal dose but would not give her cancer treatment.  Last January, Stephanie was put into hospice but has since been discharged.

Dr. Brian Callister, from Nevada, featured in Fatal Flaws, exposed how two of his patients were refused treatment under Nevada DPS law, but offered a lethal dose of drugs instead. 

It is critical that we, as Massachusetts citizens, speak for life by our actions. 

Show up! Just like you did last Monday. 

Details on the Public Hearing on Doctor Prescribed Suicide 

Gardner Auditorium

Hearings 11am- 5pm.

DPS is the only topic on the Public Health Care Committee agenda. We expect the hearing to end on time.

The Hon. Joanne Comerford

Massachusetts State House, Rm 70C

24 Beacon Street,

Boston, MA 02133

A few helpful points for testimony:

People contemplating suicide need care and help for their depression not a lethal dose to kill themselves.

A prognosis of six months to live is often inaccurate.

DPS opens the way to elder abuse.

Insurance companies may choose the cheaper way rather than the right way
