Physician-Assisted Suicide

Click Image.

Two identical bills that aim to make physician assisted suicide legal in Colorado were introduced in the State Senate and House—Senate Bill 25 and House Bill 1054. 


These bills would allow Colorado residents diagnosed as terminally ill access to “life-ending” drugs if a doctor determines them to be mentally competent to make the decision, and if two other doctors agree the patient is within six months of dying.


A law allowing physician-assisted suicide would further entrench a culture of death in our laws here in Colorado, demean the lives of vulnerable patients—exposing them to exploitation—and corrupt the medical profession, whose ethical code calls on physicians to serve life and never to kill.


We need to let our representatives know that eliminating the one who suffers is not how the people of Colorado respond to suffering.
