Oregon, Protect vulnerable patients!

Healthcare providers should be in the business of protecting and caring for vulnerable patients, not causing their premature deaths.

However, Senate Bill 494, recently introduced in the Oregon legislature, would allow the starving and dehydrating of patients who suffer from dementia or mental illness. This legislation is a direct result of the culture of death, which has permeated our culture—it must not be allowed!

Please sign this petition now to Committee Chair Senator Floyd Prozanski and ask him and his entire committee to reject this dangerous legislation. This legislation puts the lives of vulnerable patients in Oregon at risk. We must stand up and be the voice for those who cannot speak for themselves.

Our elderly and our sick neighbors deserve to be loved, cherished, and respected. This bill, and the worldview that advances assisted suicide, disposes of the weak in our society. We need to make sure that doctors and healthcare providers protect and care for patients, not kill them. (Especially those with mental illness who aren’t even capable of choosing such a thing!)

We must remember that all people are created in the image of God and have inherent worth, regardless of their stage of life or disability. There is sanctity in each and every human life, and we must fight on all fronts to protect the vulnerable –both at the beginning and end of life. 

Let’s fight against the culture of death. We must affirm the dignity of the elderly and vulnerable and fight to ensure safeguards against this kind of legally sanctioned killing.

Oppose Senate Bill 494

Senator Floyd Prozanski, 

Senate Bill 494, which has recently come up for your consideration, would allow the starving and dehydrating of patients who suffer from dementia or mental illness.

I believe this legislation would seriously jeopardize the safety of vulnerable patients in Oregon.  Please use your leadership to reject this dangerous legislation.

Our elderly and our sick neighbors deserve to be loved, cherished, and respected.  This bill communicates that, as a society, we believe they are worthless.

We need to make sure that doctors and healthcare providers protect and care for patients, not kill them.

Every person has inherent worth and dignity, regardless of their stage of life.

We must affirm the dignity of the vulnerable and fight to ensure safeguards against this kind of legally sanctioned killing. Please oppose this legislation.

Thank you for your consideration.

Sincerely,
[Your Name]

Oregon, Protect vulnerable patients!
