Protect Doctors and Defend Medical Aid in Dying by Opposing HB 536

The day after TJ used medical aid in dying to end his suffering, a cruel bill was introduced in the Montana legislature that would not only outlaw the practice of aid in dying, but criminalize doctors for helping their patients when they need them the most.

House bill 536 says that doctors who prescribe aid-in-dying medication could be charged with homicide, a crime that is punishable by up to the death penalty in Montana! I am outraged that doctors could be charged with murder for helping their dying patients find peace in their final days and the people of Montana need to let lawmakers know that this is absolutely outrageous.

You can add a personal story of how you came to support medical aid in dying in the open text box in the middle of the letter. It’s hard to overstate how powerful personal stories are when speaking to your lawmakers.

Complete the form on this page to demand that your lawmaker vote no on this draconian legislature. HB 536 must be defeated today.

This bill would deny me or someone I love the freedom to choose a peaceful death if suffering from a terminal illness became unbearable. The Baxter ruling made clear that medical aid in dying is a legitimate medical practice, with no criminal sanctions for doctors willing to provide this option to dying Montanans who request it.

The government and the personal beliefs of lawmakers have no place in the private medical decisions made between terminally ill people, their families and their medical team. HB 536 violates Montanans' privacy and chips away at our hard-earned freedom.

Medical aid in dying has been authorized in Montana for over seven years without incident; please don't take away this option and the peace of mind it gives me and my loved ones.
