"Physician-assisted suicide undermines the core values of our health care system- like protecting our nation’s most vulnerable citizens, including the elderly, people with disabilities, and people experiencing psychiatric diagnoses. Americans deserve better. I believe patients facing the end of their lives deserve to have a health care system that ensures access to the best and most comprehensive medical care possible, tailored to their needs. Physician-assisted suicide not only devalues health care, but it also devalues the lives of all human beings" . . . Congressman Brad Wenstrup, D.P.M. (R-OH).

"Patients with terminal illnesses and individuals with disabilities deserve access to hope. There are numerous concerns with assisted suicide laws and proposals, which may inadvertently affect persons with disabilities. This resolution is a step towards protecting vulnerable patients across the nation" . . . Congressman Lou Correa (D-CA).
