Time is running out to voice your opposition to one of the many assisted suicide bills making their way through the legislature. SB 1129, Death with Dignity, “Establishes a death with dignity act under which a terminally ill adult resident may obtain a prescription for medication to end the patient’s life.”

On February 17, SB 1129 passed out of the Senate Consumer Protection and Health Committee.  It is now in the Senate Committee on Judiciary and Labor, where they have issued a Notice of Decision Making for TOMORROW, February 28, at 11:00 a.m., in room 16.  This is a decision making meeting only. No oral testimony will be accepted. Click here to read the bill, note its sponsors and track its status.

Each person’s life, including its end, should remain in the hands of God, the One who ordained it. It is His, and His alone, to take. “Your eyes saw my substance, being yet unformed. And in Your book they all were written, The days fashioned for me, When as yet there were none of them.” Psalm 139:16

Take Action:

  1. It is CRUCIAL that TODAY, or no later than TOMORROW MORNING (before 10:30 a.m.), you contact the members of the Senate Committee on Judiciary and Labor if you haven’t already, as instructed to do in our February 14 e-alert on this subject.  Call and/or email each member. Leave a voicemail message for them tonight if that is most convenient.  Ask him/her to oppose SB 1129. Click on each name to email them. Be sure to let them know that you are a member of Concerned Women for America of Hawaii.
