Your One-Two Punch to Defeat Doctor-Prescribed Suicide Bill

Dana tells us that Tuesday, 12/17, the day of the hearings on doctor-prescribed suicide, is the feast of St Lazarus.  How appropriate!

There are two distinct avenues to keeping this bill from coming out of committee:

1) Anyone can testify or submit testimony.  If you have not already asked Eva to register you on Monday or submitted written testimony, please do that right now, emurphy@masscitizensforlife.org or press "reply"

2) Constituents (only) must call legislators (list below) on Monday to say that H-1998 is dangerous and poor public policy**.  Tell your legislator not to report out H -1998.  When you call, be sure the person taking the message knows you are a constituent and gets your address.  If the aide tries to assure you that your member is opposed to H - 1998, explain that you concern is that it not be voted out of committee.
