                                              Physician-Assisted Suicide Legislation  – Defeated

Legislation Attacking Pro-Life Pregnancy Care Centers – Defeated 

  The Public Health Committee completed their work on March 26th and did not vote on legislation legalizing physician-assisted suicide and legislation attacking pro-life pregnancy care centers. These two bills are dead for this session of the General Assembly.

We would like to thank all the members of our legislative network who responded to our action alerts and emailed or called their legislators.  The defeat of these two onerous proposals accomplish two very important goals:

1) The failure of the physician-assisted suicide bill will help preserve quality and truly compassionate healthcare in our state.

2) The doors of our state’s pregnancy care centers will remain open and they will be able to remain faithful to their mission, continuing to give women a true choice in Connecticut.
