ATTENTION NEW YORKERS

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW 
ABOUT 
NY'S ASSISTED SUICIDE / EUTHANASIA BILLS  

1st,  DON'T BE FOOLED!

~   PART 2   ~

John Virdone, Esq.  joined New York Against Assisted Suicide together with other leaders of organizations across the U.S.A and Canada for a press release outside of the NYC Legislative Building on Broadway, expressing their concerns about the AS/Euthanasia agenda saying the Bill is a bad policy.


On May 3, the hearing began @ 11am and continued to about 9:30pm. 
The morning portion of the hearing had all of the four legislators listed below:


Standing Committee on Health, 5-03-2018
ASSEMBLY MEMBERS PRESENT:
ASSEMBLY MEMBER RICHARD GOTTFRIED -- Chair, Assembly Standing Committee on Health
ASSEMBLY MEMBER AMY PAULIN
ASSEMBLY MEMBER HARVEY EPSTEIN
ASSEMBLY MEMBER RODNEYSE BICHOTTE
ASSEMBLY MEMBER LINDA ROSENTHAL

Assembly Member Bichotte asked testifiers showing her concern for the people of her community. She appeared not to be satisfied with the answers nor explanations to her questions. (please find the transcript in the link of the entire May 3rd hearing here: May 3, 2018 NYC AS/Euthanasia Hearing

Once afternoon arrived, there were only two legislators present for the entire remaining of the day; Assembly Member Gottfried & Assembly Member Paulin, sponsor of the bill. The room was heavily packed until the later hours. Was there a good representation of legislators present to hear testimonies and will to ask questions? The answer is no.

The hearing ended with the last testifier, who was in favor of the Bill, urging NY State to pass the Bill by end of the month, May 2018. The Bill did not come up for a vote by the end of the legislative session, June 2018.

Those who are pushing for the AS/Euthanasia agenda say they will return in 2019.

~ PART 1 ~       
The May 3rd hearing was the second hearing held in New York State. The first hearing was held in the Capital of New York, Albany on April 23, 2018. NY Against AS attended both hearings. NY Against AS was surprised to learn that there were a number of leaders who oppose Assisted Suicide in New York, who applied to provide testimony but they were denied. 
Instead, the leaders were told by the office of Assemblyman Gottfried, Chairman of the Health Committee to attend on May 3rd, even though those same leaders had work conflicts. The result was a hearing that in NY Against AS's opinion, was unbalanced.  More testimonies in support of assisted suicide were given permission to present, than testimonies in opposition. More legislators heard the unbalanced-in-ratio of testimonies than the hearing in New York City. This caused an appearance to legislators and on-lookers in attendance in Albany, that there were more in support for assisted suicide than the actual truth. At any given point in time, there were about 8 legislators in attendance of the hearing.

AS/Euthanasia in environment of Abuses, Frauds, Coercions







Advocates of Assisted Suicide bills claim that the bills are safe because of Safe Guards built into the Bills. Is this true or not? New Yorkers know first hand about fraud, corruption, scams and con artists who are continuously at work, so why should New Yorkers trust someone who claims the bills are safe? Should we trust doctors who have a license to kill? We know corruption exists and just because there is a law against something, does not necessarily mean people follow that law.

Let's add little more light on this topic of corruption. Those advocates of Assisted Suicide, for example; Dr. Timothy Quill, on October 3rd, 2017 gave a presentation at the Northwell Medical school on Long island, NY. He claimed that physicians are already helping their patients to die and that this should no longer be kept a secret. He said it would be good to discuss the issue in order to learn.
So, if there are physicians who are already helping their patients to commit suicide when it is illegal, what law will make these corrupt physicians stop being corrupt?

On September 7th, 2017 the highest court in New York ruled against Assisted Suicide as a Right in New York State. "

"As the Court explained, "[e]veryone, regardless of physical condition, is entitled, if competent, to refuse unwanted lifesaving medical treatment; no one is permitted to assist a suicide. " Myers v Schneiderin 2017


So, what about abuses and coercions? Have they taken place? The sad truth is, yes and few have been documented where assisted suicide and euthanasia are legal.

Action Needed - City Council of DC - Voted in favor of Assisted Suicide

Calls are needed to be made to the Mayor of Washington DC.

On November 1st, the City Council of Washington DC voted in favor of Assisted Suicide/Euthanasia law with a vote of 11-2,  despite strong opposition by the African American community.

 Write to DC Mayor Bowser to veto physician-assisted suicide measure:
“The D.C. Death With Dignity Act,” B21-38.

The council will hold a final vote on the bill, possibly as early as Nov. 15,” according to the Washington Post.

"Many in the black community distrust the health-care system and fear that racism in life will translate into discrimination in death, said Patricia King, a Georgetown Law School professor who has written about the racial dynamics of assisted death.

“Historically, African Americans have not had a lot of control over their bodies, and I don’t think offering them assisted suicide is going to make them feel more autonomous,” King said.

Contact Mayor Browser and urge her to veto “The D.C. Death With Dignity Act,” B21-38.
THANK YOU!
