Thank lawmakers for protecting life in Oklahoma!
Determining cause of death is very important. When someone dies and his or her cause of death is uncertain, often an autopsy is performed. If an individual dies of natural causes, the case is closed. But if a patient dies as the result of another person, as a society we usually take action against the killer.
Police track down killers because we value life. However, in many states that allow physician-assisted suicide, doctors who kill their patients are instructed to lie about the cause of death on the patient’s death certificate. This is a very dangerous practice and gives doctors the ability to take life without accountability and oversight.
That is why the Death Certificate Accuracy Act (HB 1495) that was just passed by the Oklahoma House is very important! This law makes it illegal for medical professionals to lie on death certificates. Please join us in thanking lawmakers for standing up for common sense and protecting vulnerable patients.
By passing this important law, Oklahoma is further safeguarding itself against the practice of euthanasia. Thankfully, physician-assisted suicide is still illegal in Oklahoma. This law makes it clear that medical professionals in Oklahoma must be truthful.
When doctors can lie on death certificates, we lose the ability to monitor and protect patients.
We believe that all people have inherent human dignity and value and all life is worth protecting. In our country today the very young, very old, and very sick are at risk of being discarded. Our greatest weapon against this evil is to tell the truth. We need to tell the truth about abortion and push for laws that will force the public to face the humanity of the unborn. And we need to tell the truth about the value of the lives of the elderly.
Just like every abortion kills a baby, physician-assisted suicide is not merely euphemistic “death with dignity,” it is doctors killing their patients. We must speak clearly about the reality of these things. Even if it is uncomfortable, the truth will save lives.
Please join us in applauding the Oklahoma House for standing up for the elderly and very sick. Doctors must not be allowed to lie on death certificates, and thus be able to kill patients without oversight. We must fight for preserving the truth.
