On March 30, 2015, in opposition to the push for doctor-assisted suicide, the Heritage Foundation presents . . .
Living Life to Its Fullest: Supporting the Sick and Elderly in their Most Vulnerable Hours
In recent months, heartbreaking stories of Americans struggling with devastating diagnoses have captured our empathy. In response, activists are using these stories to advance legislation that has otherwise been rejected by the people. At least 13 states across the country are considering legislation that would legalize physician-assisted suicide. But legalizing physician-assisted suicide would be a grave mistake. The merciful thing would be to expect doctors to do no harm and ease the pain of those who suffer and support families and ministries in providing that care.
Join us as an expert panel explores the medical, policy, and frontline aspects of this debate that leaves no family unaffected.
