Important information to share with your legislators.
New evidence is showing what many of us already acknowledge and inherently knew, that suicide contagion is real when it comes to assisted suicide . . . particularly for women.
The attached study reveals that suicide contagion is real! Please share with your legislators and friends and post on social media.
A peer-reviewed article in the Journal of Ethics and Mental Health outlines women as most at-risk from “avoidable premature death” in places where euthanasia and assisted suicide are legal.
“The data from Europe and from the U.S. indicate that subsequent to the introduction of euthanasia/assisted suicide, it is women who have most been placed at risk of avoidable premature death from changes in rates of intentional self-initiated death and from changes in rates of non-assisted suicide. More research is needed but consideration of prima facie descriptive data on non-assisted suicide, assisted suicide, and euthanasia in Europe raise serious and concerning questions.” Read the article.

We already know from testimony at the public hearing that in addition to the many grave problems with SB88 and assisted suicide in general, that SB88 does not prevent death certificates from being falsified. Use FIC’s Action Center to contact the members of the Public Health Committee, the Judiciary Committee and your own legislators. Thank you!
