We are California Democrats and we are terrified of assisted suicide laws. We have a severely disabled daughter who is in the institutional care of the State of California.
Given the long and notorious history of euthanasia, we are hoping you will approve HB 505 to put an end to the deceptions about this "cause." We believe this is necessary to discourage assisted suicide from coming here to California, if it is not stopped in Montana. We don't believe there are any effective safeguards against its possible abuses.
In our case personally, we fear physician assisted suicide could be sold here in Califolrnia as a means to prematurely terminate difficult disability cases like our daughters', to supposedly save money for relatives and caregivers, even while it is made to appear as a "choice."
Please vote "YES" on HB 505.
