Stan Greenberg has been working on bringing an Oregon-style Aid in Dying 
bill to Connecticut.  He asked that we all take action to prevent the 
Federal government from overriding the law that the District of Columbia 
recently passed.

Thanks for your help.

Washington DC has passed a Death with Dignity law (Law 21-182) which 
recently went into effect. DC's Council had past it by 11-2, and 2/3 of 
DC's citizens favor it.

But, led by some Republican representatives, the House voted (on 
9/14/2017) to “undo” it. If the Senate does the same thing, their next 
step may be to make Aid in Dying illegal in the USA.

Please go to the websites of Senators Murphy and Blumenthal and type 
short messages that ask (implore) them to oppose any effort by 
Republican senators to deny DC’s citizens an option that they strongly 
desire. The links are:


Thank you!
