Assisted Suicide Resolution
A recent announcement has been made regarding the introduction of a Congressional Resolution opposing the legalization of assisted suicide. The resolution is sponsored and was submitted by the following legislators from both political parties: Mr. Wenstrup (for himself, Mr. Correa, Mr. Vargas, Mr. Langevin, Mr. Lipinski, Mr. Harris, Mr. LaHood, Mr. Abraham, Mr. Rothfus, and Mr. Suozzi). It was referred to the Committee on Energy and Commerce. This bi-partisan effort is the result of months of work by individual congresspersons and their staffs, the Patients Rights Action Fund and the National Alliance Against Legalizing Assisted Suicide. Below is additional information on the Sense of Congress resolution, H.Con.Res.80. Organizations are encouraged to share this information on your social media pages and on their website.
