GREAT NEWS! Last week, the State House of Representatives gave us the win we needed to defeat physician-assisted suicide (PAS) in Maine.  This was the third session in a row we had to fight this horrible bill. However, during this session, we won with 24 more votes on our side, many more than other years.  It was encouraging to see both Democrats and Republicans come together to defeat PAS in the House after losing in the Senate by one vote.

You, the members of CWA of Maine, contacted the Health and Human Services Committee and your lawmakers to make victory happen.  This is why we do what we do, to inform you, to encourage you to take action, and to celebrate victory with you when we win.  Your prayers, phone calls, and e-mails made the difference!

CWA of Maine tirelessly worked with the Christian Civic League of Maine, Maine Right to Life Committee and the Catholic Diocese to stop this bill.  It was a costly and time consuming ordeal, but well worth the effort.

To God be the glory for the great thing He has done on behalf of the citizens of Maine by stopping PAS again with an even wider margin of victory.

Take Action: Please contact your lawmakers and thank them for their opposition vote or seek explanation for a vote of support.  This was our most important bill during this session. Thus, following through is very important.  Click here to find out how your lawmaker voted.

For life!
