Vote No on SB 1129 SD 2
No Assisted Suicide
• The act is sold as providing a voluntary patient choice, but doesn’t even have a requirement of voluntariness, capability or consent when the lethal dose is administered.
• People who ask about the act will lose their right to informed consent: They will lose the right to be told about alternatives for cure.
• The claim that self-administration is required is not true. The act says that a patient “may” self-administer the lethal dose. There is no language that administration “must” be by self-administration.
