  • Urge Legislators to Vote “No” on Assisted Suicide

    Once again, a bill to legalize the practice of assisted suicide has been introduced in the California State Legislature, in the form of Senate Bill 128 (SB 128). 

    This time, the bill has been announced in the Senate and is being authored by two democratic legislators:  Senator Lois Wolk (D-Davis) and Senator Bill Monning (D-Carmel)*. 

    Once more, this legislation will be vigorously opposed by a diverse group of organizations representing doctors, people with disabilities, faith-based organizations, hospitals, hospice, minorities, the poor and the uninsured.

    Catholic social teaching tells us that we are created in the image of God; therefore, we hold life to be sacred from conception to natural death.  We believe that we are stewards—not owners—of our lives.  

    As such, the California Catholic Conference remains steadfast in our opposition to assisted suicide and any attempts to legalize it, and therefore, strongly opposes SB 128.  Assisted suicide represents misguided public policy, which would have numerous detrimental implications for vulnerable people and impact our society negatively. 

    Please ask your Senator to vote “NO” on SB 128.


    *At its date of introduction, thirteen additional legislators were listed as co-authors to SB 128, including Senators: Hannah Beth Jackson (D-Santa Barbara), Mark Leno (D-San Francisco), Marty Block (D-San Diego), Isadore Hall (D-Inglewood,) Lonnie Hancock (D-Berkeley), Ed Hernandez (D-West Covina) Jerry Hill (D-San Mateo), Mike McGuire (D-Healdsburg), and Bob Wieckowski (D-Fremont); and they are joined by Assembly Members: Cristina Garcia (D-Bell Gardens), Bill Quirk (D-Hayward), and Mark Stone (D-Scotts Valley).
