Thank You for Helping Us Stop the Passage of Physician-Assisted Suicide in Our State

   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 that it will return next year.

     Thanks to your helpful voices and the dedication of groups rallied together in opposition, all of these efforts convinced Connecticut’s legislators to reject physician-assisted suicide as a healthcare option in our state for the fifth time.

     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.
