Oppose End–of–Life Option Act SB0443/ HB 0403 (The Honorable Elijah E. Cummings and the Honorable Shane E. Pendergrass Act)
Physician-assisted suicide sends the message that some lives are not worth living. From an ethical standpoint, physical assisted suicide raises profound questions about the value of human life and the responsibilities of healthcare professionals. Allowing individuals to seek assistance in ending their lives challenges the fundamental principle of preserving life and promoting the well-being of patients. It also introduces the potential for coercion and abuse, particularly among vulnerable populations such as the elderly or those with disabilities. Furthermore, the role of medical professionals is fundamentally rooted in providing care and healing, not in facilitating death.
