Delaware Governor John Carney needs to veto assisted suicide Bill HB 140.

Everyone needs to contact Governor John Carney and urge him to veto assisted suicide Bill HB 140. Email him at:

Carney has 10 days to decide to sign or veto the bill. The bill passed on June 25.

In a roller coaster ride of votes, the Delaware Senate passed assisted suicide Bill HB 140 on June 25 by an 11 to 10 vote during a second vote on the bill.

On June 20 I reported that the Delaware Senate defeated the assisted suicide Bill HB 140 by a 9 to 9 vote. I thanked the many Delaware citizens who worked to defeat the bill.

In a 2022 interview, Delaware Governor John Carney stated that he opposed assisted suicide. He stated:
“Ultimately, though, I believe enabling physicians to facilitate suicide crosses a boundary that I’m just not comfortable crossing.”
Eleven Delaware Senators voted to legalize assisted suicide after an assisted suicide lobby leader lied to them three times during the Senate hearing.
