Dear Maryland lawmaker,
I want to thank you for standing strong and voting against physician-assisted suicide in 2019. Your vote was critical in ensuring our state remains protected from this dangerous practice.
I am writing today to ask you to continue to stand strong against the agenda to bring assisted suicide to Maryland, which has renewed its efforts in 2020.
I know this is a deeply emotional issue, but it is also one that is rife with misinformation. Despite proponents’ claims that the bill contains “safeguards” for vulnerable people — like those who have a disability, the elderly, and people of color — those are in fact an illusion.
The bill introduced last week, HB 643 / SB 701, is the same misguided policy you that you have rejected in the past. In fact, the bill still:
Across the country, all of this is happening in states that have legalized the practice. As a constitutent in Maryland, I am asking you to remain strong and again reject this dangerous agenda, and keep Maryland safe from assisted suicide.
Thank you for helping protect our great state.
