Physician-Assisted Suicide Bill Thwarted in 2019

Posted on April 04, 2019 in: News

Physician-Assisted Suicide Bill Thwarted in 2019

The Connecticut Catholic Public Affairs Conference is pleased to report that the Connecticut General Assembly's Public Health Committee has decided not to vote on HB 5898 (the physician-assisted suicide bill) this 2019 legislative session, and that there is little hope it will return next year.
Thanks to your helpful voices and the dedication of groups rallied together in opposition, we were able for the fifth year to convince Connecticut’s legislators to reject physician-assisted suicide as a healthcare option in our state.
The Conference will proudly continue to promote a culture of life and support for the sick, the disabled, and the elderly.  
We thank you for your support!  We could not have accomplished this without all of you.
In faith,
The CT Catholic Public Affairs Conference
Chris Healy, Executive Director
Deacon David Reynolds, Associate Director for Public Policy
Anne LaMonica, Associate Director for Education
Lori Stewart, Legislative Liaison
