From Hawaii Family Forum

The physician-assisted suicide bill (SB 803 entitled Death with Dignity) has been scheduled by the Senate Health Committee.  This bill, if passed, would allow a terminally ill, competent adult to receive medication to end life. Prohibits mercy killings, lethal injections, and active euthanasia. This bill also allows an alternate doctor to replace the attending doctor if latter declines to prescribe.

We are asking you to do several things:

  1. Submit testimony in opposition to this bill to the Senate Health Committee at HTHTestimony@capitol.hawaii.gov.  Please remember to stick to the talking points and be courteous at all times.
  2. Show up at the hearing on Monday at 2:45 (in the auditorium of the State Capitol).  It is anticipated that there will be many people attending this hearing and several people from the disability community.  Please be respectful and allow the outside seating for those in wheelchairs.  If you want to come early to ensure a seat, please do so.  Bring your friends and family with you!
  3. Call each of the members of the Senate Judiciary Committee (below) and ask them to OPPOSE SB 803.
  4. Ask at least 2-3 other people to do these things as well.
