Subject: Urge your state Senator to oppose assisted suicide bill in Pennsylvania
Dear Pro-Life Leaders,
As we had anticipated, Pennsylvania state Senator Daylin Leach (D-Philadelphia) is once again introducing a bill to legalize assisted suicide in Pennsylvania. You will find the co-sponsorship memo here: http://www.legis.state.pa.us/cfdocs/Legis/CSM/showMemoPublic.cfm?chamber=S&SPick=20170&cosponId=21992 .
Please call and email your state Senator and urge him or her to oppose this dangerous bill. If you do not know who your state Senator is, or you need contact information, please visit http://www.legis.state.pa.us/cfdocs/legis/home/findyourlegislator/#address .
The bill has not been assigned a number yet, so just call and email your state Senator with this simple message: "I urge you to oppose Senator Daylin Leach's dangerous bill to legalize assisted suicide in Pennsylvania. This bill would threaten people with disabilities and other vulnerable individuals and would undermine the trust between patients and doctors in our Commonwealth."
This is a state bill, not a federal one, so there is no need to contact U.S. Senators Bob Casey and Pat Toomey.
Thank you for making these critical calls and sending these important emails!
All the best,
Maria V. Gallagher
