We are writing to share a remarkable video featuring Dr. Brian Callister of Nevada detailing the failure of assisted suicide in California and Oregon. Today, it is being released to national publications and promoted through a digital social media campaign. What makes Dr. Callister’s story so compelling? It includes a doctor’s personal story of how two of his patients were denied life-saving treatment by their health insurance. This is yet another example of the dangerous failures of assisted suicide from the patient’s and medical community’s perspective. His testimony is a current and direct validation of our concerns that we have been claiming for over a decade.
As both a terminal patient and the President of the Patients Rights Action Fund, I ask you for your support and assistance in spreading this important story. Through your organizations, coalitions and alliances, we ask that you share or boost this video via social media. Your support will help improve our ability to spread this story nationally. We are at a pivotal moment in this battle against assisted suicide and your support will help every state defeat this dangerous law.
