You Can Help Stop Assisted Suicide in Pennsylvania

Below is an important message for all Pennsylvanians who believe in the sanctity of life. Please take the action requested by Maria Gallagher, Legislative Director of the Pennsylvania Pro-Life Federation. Your phone call and email can stop assisted suicide from becoming law in Pennsylvania.

Dear Pro-Life Leaders,

Please call and email your state Senator with this important message: “I want to prevent assisted suicide in Pennsylvania. Please pass Shawn’s Law—House Bill 1827.”

House Bill 1827 increases the penalties for those who try to assist individuals under age 18 or people with intellectual disabilities to die by suicide. The bill passed the House and is now pending in the state Senate Judiciary Committee.

If you do not know who your state Senator is, or you need contact information, please visit https://www.legis.state.pa.us/cfdocs/legis/home/findyourlegislator/#address .

Please note: This is a state issue, not a federal one, so you do NOT need to contact U.S. Senators Bob Casey and Pat Toomey.

To read the bill, please visit https://www.legis.state.pa.us/CFDOCS/Legis/PN/Public/btCheck.cfm?txtType=HTM&sessYr=2019&sessInd=0&billBody=H&billTyp=B&billNbr=1827&pn=3807 .

Thank you for making these critical calls and sending these important emails!

Yours for LIFE!

Maria V. Gallagher
