Protect New Mexico Citizens from Assisted Suicide

Protect New Mexico Citizens from Assisted Suicide

Help us petition New Mexico Attorney General, Gary King, to appeal Judge Nash’s assisted suicide decision in order to protect New Mexico citizens from assisted suicide.

Judge Nan Nash, of the Second Judicial District in New Mexico made the wrong decision in the case Morris v New Mexico. Nash decided to legislate from the bench and allow New Mexico doctors to prescribe lethal drugs to assist the suicide deaths of their patients.


 The case Morris v. New Mexico, which was heard December 12 - 13, 2013, claimed that "aid in dying", which is also known as assisted suicide, is not prohibited by the New Mexico assisted suicide law because "aid in dying" is not assisted suicide.



"Aid in dying" is assisted suicide and assisted suicide does not constitute medical treatment. Therefore prohibiting assisted suicide does not undermine the right to privacy or autonomy.

It is not possible to protect vulnerable citizens from assisted suicide abuse, especially when elder abuse is involved.

Petition to: Gary King

We urge you to appeal the decision made by Judge Nan Nash and protect New Mexico citizens from assisted suicide.



"Aid in dying" is assisted suicide and assisted suicide does not constitute medical treatment. Therefore prohibiting assisted suicide does not undermine the right to privacy or autonomy.



The Judge did not take into account that assisted suicide is different than suicide because assisted suicide requires the direct involvement of another person. It is not possible to protect vulnerable citizens from assisted suicide abuse, especially when elder abuse is involved.


Sincerely,
[Your Name]
