Pledge to keep hate out of end of life care.

    1. Petition by

      Death with Dignity National Center

We're outraged opponents of Death with Dignity are taking money from two anti-gay groups in an attempt to stop end-of-life care policy reform: the American Family Association and the American Principles Project. Over the years these two groups have focused their efforts on denying people basic human rights because of their own moral objections. Gay and lesbian individuals and immigrants have been the most frequent targets of these two groups; one of which has been named a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center.

Opponents of Death with Dignity in Massachusetts used this hate money to launch and seed a political campaign, providing critical resources to build the infrastructure of a campaign. Why are these groups involved in the Death with Dignity issue at all? Our movement is about compassion and dignity for people who are dying. Please help us keep hate money out of Death with Dignity policy reform, and pledge to keep hate out of end-of-life care.

      Nobody should be able to dictate my end-of-life decisions but me...and certainly not when they're groups with an agenda filled with hate and exclusion!

      Because these misguided people don't have the right to make you suffer at the end of your life.
