The House of Representatives approved an amendment from Rep. Andy Harris that would repeal Washington, D.C.’s, Death with Dignity Act. A similar amendment may be introduced in the Senate. This brazen overreach, if successful, could empower opponents to seek a nationwide ban on medical aid in dying.
But this battle isn’t over. We plan to work with our allies in Congress to strip the amendment from any final appropriations bill. And you can protect medical aid in dying by telling your Senators you support D.C’s law and medical aid in dying.
Urge your Senators and your Representative to oppose any attempt to repeal Washington D.C.’s Death with Dignity Act.
