Hawaii assisted suicide law came into effect.

Alex Schadenberg
Executive Director - Euthanasia Prevention Coalition


Hawaii's assisted suicide law came into effect on January 1. According to the Associated Press very few doctors and pharmacies are willing to prescribe or dispense lethal drugs.



Melinda Ashton, the chief quality officer for Hawaii Pacific Health, one of the state's largest healthcare providers, told the Associated Press:
“There are a number of health care providers, nurses and others who are really uncomfortable about this, so asking anybody to participate as a patient ends their life is a really tough thing,” 
“The most recent barrier does seem to be we haven’t yet located a pharmacy willing to provide the medication.”
The Euthanasia Prevention Coalition promotes a model of caring for people, never killing.

Well THANK GOD FOR ALL THOSE GOOD PEOPLE WHO ARE WILLING NOT TO ASSIST.!
Just go thru a suicide in your family and you will know why I write that. Yes not one but
two for our family and illegal drugs did it. They are never far from our thoughts and all that
they & we are missing because they made that choice!

God will not bless HI. for passing that law. What stupid lawmakers you have. Get rid of
them. They do you no favors by violating His Laws.
