My friend Doug Peary testified yesterday at the Connecticut legislature in support of a proposed assisted suicide law. Doug has had to watch his father, his sister, and his wife endure end of life suffering due to illness. He spoke in favor of a proposed law that would permit physicians to prescribe life-ending drugs to mentally competent patients who are in great pain and who do not have long to live.
No person should have to endure great pain, and no person should be forced to watch their loved ones suffer. If you live in Connecticut and you agree, contact your legislators and let them know!
