TAKE ACTION: Urge Vermont Senate committee to update medical aid in dying laws

A Vermont Senate committee needs to hear your voice! The Senate Health and Welfare Committee will be hearing H 190 tomorrow, April 4. This is a great bill that, if passed, will benefit all of America — so please take action today!

H 190 will remove the residency requirement on Vermont’s medical aid in dying law. This would make Vermont the second state to do so. It is an excellent bill to support, as many states require patients to either seek treatment for terminal diseases or suffer excruciating pain by abstaining. In many cases, neither option allows an individual to have peaceful final days. Vermont has the opportunity to welcome anyone from across the country to seek this care and find peace in death before having to suffer painful symptoms. Vermont has a chance to become a place where people can decide what is best for them, rather than be forced to prolong the inevitable. Religion is the only remaining organized source of objection to these laws, as they have been shown to be effective and free from abuse.

Again, this very important bill will be heard tomorrow, April 4, so please don’t wait to take action. We have included suggested language through the “Take Action” button, which can be customized as you see fit. For best results, please be succinct and polite.

(Note: You must live in this state to take part in this action alert.)
