Please call your CA Senator to urge an NO vote on SB 128. The following talking points will be helpful in leaving a message or speaking with a staff member.
Hello, my name is _______ and I am a constituent of District . I am calling Senator _______ today to ask him/her to vote NO on SB 128, a bill that would legalize physician-assisted suicide.
Assisted Suicide is bad for California. Since legalizing assisted suicide, the rate of non-terminally ill citizens committing suicide in Oregon has increased by over 40%. We do not want our teens and parents and mentally ill citizens encouraged to commit suicide in CA.
Assisted Suicide is being promoted by wealthy people who want to maintain control over every aspect of their lives. But, it is the poor, the elderly, and the disabled who will be coerced into suicide as the price of medical care increases. We want to protect the lives of our most vulnerable in CA.
SB 128 would legalize assisted suicide without safeguards. There is no requirement that people notify family before committing suicide. There is no guarantee that a prognosis of less than six months to live is reliable. And there is no safeguard against coercion from people who stand to profit from the patient’s death. Assisted suicide is bad law and it is bad for CA.
