D.C.'s Inhuman Assisted Suicide Law Must Be Repealed
February 22, 2017 from Family Research Council
With barely a murmur from the major news media, Washington, D.C. became just the sixth jurisdiction in America to legalize assisted suicide this past Saturday. As discussed previously, assisted suicide is an abhorrent illustration of how far we have fallen as a culture, where death can now be chosen as if it were a legitimate choice among a variety of medical options. It is therefore extremely disappointing, to say the least, that Congress did not use its Constitutional authority to block the D.C. assisted suicide legislation from becoming law through a joint resolution of disapproval. Congress can and must exert its constitutional authority to nullify this harmful and deeply flawed D.C. le
