House Bill 1054 – House Bill 1054 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.

 

The bill is scheduled to be heard on the House Floor for Second Reading on Wednesday, February 24th.  The House begins their work at 9:00 a.m.

 

Please contact your Representative and ask him/her to OPPOSE House Bill 1054 which would legalize physician assisted suicide in Colorado.
