Tell Congress to stop physician assisted suicide

Tell Congress to pass the joint resolutions, H.J. Res. 27 and S.J. 4, ending physician assisted suicide in Washington, D.C.

Take action now and send a message to Congress.

These bills are essential because Washington, D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser signed an Act (Act 21-577) on December 19, 2016. This act will legalize assisted suicide by granting an adult patient the right to request and receive from a physician a lethal prescription to end his or her own life.

The act was sent to Congress on January 6, 2017 for a Congressional review period of 30 days. After this review period, the law automatically goes into effect on February 17 unless Congress passes H.J. Res. 27 and S.J. 4.

These bills must pass before February 17 in order to stop physician assisted suicide in our nation's Capitol.

To learn more about why Congress needs to act, read this commentary written by several congressmen, two of whom are doctors who oppose physician assisted suicide.

Take action now and send a message to Congress.
