The bill to legalize physician-assisted suicide was passed out of committee and is on the “ready list” to be considered by the Delaware House of Representatives.
Delaware Catholic Advocacy Network opposition is rooted in the church’s belief in the sanctity of life and the dignity of the individual, both of which are objective and non-negotiable truths and principles of our faith.
Efforts on the part of the Catholic community, other faith groups, medical professionals, Saint Francis Hospital, and advocates for persons with disabilities, kept this legislation from becoming law in recent legislative sessions. We need to do so again. You can play an important role by contacting your state representative to urge them to oppose this bill and to vote “no” should it come before the House.
