Senate Bill 25 – End of Life Options for Terminally Ill Individuals

Senate Bill 25 seeks to legalize physician assisted suicide.  A law allowing assisted suicide would demean the lives of vulnerable patients and expose them to exploitation by those who feel they are better off dead. Such a policy would corrupt the medical profession, whose ethical code calls on physicians to serve life and never to kill.  The voiceless or marginalized in our society – the poor, the frail elderly, and racial minorities would be the first to feel pressure to die.

The Colorado Catholic Conference OPPOSES this legislation.

This bill will be heard in the Senate State Veterans & Military Affairs  Committee on Wednesday, February 3rd at 1:30 p.m. , in Senate Committee room 356.

Please contact your Senator and the members of the State Veterans & Military Affairs Committee and ask them to OPPOSE Senate Bill 25 which would legalize physician assisted suicide in Colorado.
