Congress is currently considering the future of assisted suicide in the District of Columbia.
The U.S. House has a say in what goes on in the District, so no matter what state you live in, your voice can have an impact.
Republicans on the House Appropriations Committee have voted to repeal the law. Now it’s critical that all members of the U.S. House hear from people who support the repeal when the bill moves to the House floor.
Jean Swenson has a unique perspective on such laws.
In 1980, her car was hit by a semi-truck. Her head went through the windshield, breaking her neck, and she was paralyzed from the shoulders down. This powerful video shares her thoughts on assisted suicide.
The House members who voted in committee to protect life understand that there’s no dignity in assisted suicide. As Jean explained: “I’m really grateful that people didn’t take my cries that my life was over seriously and they provided what I really needed – which was support, encouragement, prayers. … The road hasn’t always been easy, but it’s been good. And it’s definitely been worth fighting for.”
TAKE ACTION: Please take a few moments to send a message through our Action Center to your member of Congress. Ask them to support the repeal of D.C.’s assisted-suicide law.By calling on Congress to repeal DC’s harmful law, you help send the message that all lives, including Jean’s, are worth fighting for.
