Contact Albany – Oppose Assisted Suicide!!

The proponents of legalizing Assisted Suicide continue to push in the legislature. We must stand against this!

Please, please(!), contact your representatives TODAY to register your support for a culture of life and opposition to the Culture of Death that advocates for simply killing those are seen as no longer useful.

The template provided by the Albany Update is very good…and…we strongly recommend editing it. Our elected officials are, not wrongly, becoming ever-more able to spot and ignore form letters. So please, take the few moments necessary to express your personal opinion.

Please always feel free to Contact Us if we can be of any assistance!
