From the website of Maryland Right to Life:
Here’s what you need to know to be a voice for those vulnerable to assisted suicide:
Legislation currently being considered by the Maryland General Assembly, which would legalize physician-assisted suicide (PAS) is fatally flawed. The End of Life Option bill’s dangerous and careless provisions make it bad policy for Maryland, and wrong for Maryland citizens. Assisted suicide creates a strong economic incentive to deny treatment to patients in crisis. There is evidence that any so-called safeguards that might come attached to the bill do not work. Maryland’s leading disability rights groups recognize the many dangers the bill poses to those with intellectual and development disabilities, such as falling prey to undue influence from doctors or family members, resulting in a lack of true informed consent. Maryland Right to Life worked hard to successfully prevent passage of an Assisted Suicide law for three straight years in 2015, 2016 and 2017. PAS is now legal in six states and the District of Columbia.

Maryland Right to Life Mission Maryland Right to Life, Inc. (MDRTL) recognizes the fundamental value of every human life. MDRTL works to protect all human life by working to make abortion, infanticide, euthanasia, and the destruction of human embryos socially, legally, and morally unacceptable and by promoting positive alternatives to these acts.
We believe that the majority of Marylanders would oppose most of the abortions performed in Maryland if they fully understood the extent of Maryland’s liberal abortion law. We further believe that most Marylanders do not support infanticide, euthanasia, human cloning, or embryonic stem cell research.
