Nancy Elliott, a Euthanasia Prevention Coalition International board member and a former three term New Hampshire state representative led the charge to defeat assisted suicide bill HB 1325 in New Hampshire.

Nancy Elliott posted the following message on her Facebook page:

picassistedsuicide8bSome of you may have heard by now that HB 1325 for Assisted Suicide was killed 219 to 66, by the New Hampshire House of Representatives. It went down in flames. This was the last of three bills and the most direct one promoting Assisted Suicide. We will continue to be protected from Assisted Suicide in New Hampshire for this session.

I want to thank all who helped defeat Assisted Suicide in this state, you are the best! I would also like to thank the Representatives who helped us, especially Representative Lennette Peterson and Representative Dan McGuire, who spoke in favor of killing this bill on the house floor.

Nancy Elliott closely following HB 1325 from its introduction. She made sure that HB 1325 was fully analysed.

Thank you to Seattle Attorney Margaret Dore, the leader of Choice is an Illusion, who helped to develop effective talking points based on the language of the bill.

Thank you to Not Dead Yet and the disability groups for effectively opposing this dangerous bill.

The focus now turns to defeating the assisted suicide bills in Connecticut and New Jersey.
