|Congressman Jason Chaffetz|
fundamentally disagrees with the billDistrict of Columbia Mayor Muriel Bowser signed the assisted suicide bill on December 19. The US Congress has 30 working days to vote NO to assisted suicide in DC.
Petition: I support H.J. Res 27 to reject the DC assisted suicide act.
It is not clear if Congress will approve the legislation. It has blocked D.C. legislation before, most recently the city's recreational marijuana law. Under the Constitution, Congress has to sign off on all D.C. laws.EPC - USA President, Nancy Elliott stated:
Rep. Jason Chaffetz is doing the right thing. Assisted Suicide is dangerous public policy, preying on people who are not necessarily dying, such as diabetics and is open to elder abuse, disabled abuse, death because of wrong diagnosis, suicide steering and suicide contagion. Having this law in our nations' capital is a black eye on our country.Petition: I support H.J. Res 27 to reject the DC assisted suicide act.
