We mourn the death of Nancy Elliott, an amazing woman and great leader.

Nancy Elliott
The Euthanasia Prevention Coalition (EPC) is mourning the loss of Nancy Elliott, the immediate Past Chair of EPC - USA.

Nancy was a former three term New Hampshire State legislator who learned about the issue of assisted suicide while sitting as a member of the New Hampshire House Judiciary Committee when they debated an assisted suicide bill.

Nancy Elliott's obituary (Link).

Nancy soon became one of the nations leading experts on euthanasia and assisted suicide as a fierce advocate for the vulnerable, disabled, and elderly regarding euthanasia and assisted suicide.

Nancy served as a leader for more than a decade speaking, writing, and testifying across America and the world on behalf of the EPC-International and as the Chair of EPC-USA.

Nancy was instrumental in contacting key legislators, committee chairs and Governors to convince them to prevent the legalization of assisted suicide. 

Her legacy is in many lives that were saved.

Nancy was featured in the film - Fatal Flaws produced by the Euthanasia Prevention Coalition and Dunn Media. In the film, Nancy spoke about how her husband would have felt if doctors were pushing assisted suicide when he was sick.

For me, Nancy was also a close friend.

Nancy wrote many articles opposing assisted suicide but she was also quoted in many articles world-wide. Here is a list of some of Nancy's great articles:
  • Speech to the New Hampshire House Judiciary Committee (Link).
  • Letter to Massachusetts politicians to reject assisted suicide bill (Link).
  • Letter to the Maine Health and Human Services Committee (Link).
  • The assisted suicide bill was aimed at people like my husband (Link).
  • New Jersey Journal endorses Canadian style euthanasia law. (Link).
  • Reject New York assisted suicide bill (Link).
  • Mary kills people is a dangerous and irresponsible show that should be terminated (Link).
