We are very saddened that Colorado voters have given their doctors the right to prescribe lethal drugs for the purpose of assisting their patients suicide.

The results were based on a massive assisted suicide lobby campaign that outspent the No on Prop 106 campaign by more than 2 to 1.

It is also based on a culture that fears a painful death with a healthcare system that does not effectively care for people at the most vulnerable time of their life. People also fear dying alone.

We need a caring culture. 

A culture that cares for dying people. A culture that assures people that they will not suffer in their final days. A culture that can assure people that they will not die alone.

Keep up with the latest pro-life news and information on Twitter.

Giving doctors the right to assist the suicide of their patients only creates new cultural problems and it gives doctors power over life and death. Power that some doctors will abuse.
