HB 2217 has been scheduled for a public hearing on Tuesday, March 19 at 3 pm in room HR E. Please make time to come if you are able.
Oregon’s deadly physician-assisted suicide law already contains a frightening loophole in which someone else could get away with administering the drugs to a helpless victim. HB 2217 expands this loophole by changing “taken” to “self-administer.” This is broadly defined to allow the drugs to be administered through an IV, feeding tube, injection or even through a gas mask.
HB 2217 would push Oregon closer to legalized euthanasia. It must be stopped.
Last week, we had a big win and helped change some language to transform an anti-life bill. The war isn’t over yet, but as we advocate together, we ARE winning some very big battles.
