Statement on Defeat of HB 6425 – Aid in Dying

By Christopher Healy
Executive Director – CT Catholic Conference

“All glory goes to God. People of faith came together and their voices were heard and we are most grateful to legislators who realized we must show more compassion and support for those who are in distress, and isolation rather than lead people away from hope and love.”

“This victory belongs to the thousands of people from all faiths who got involved because they believe life is sacred and God-given. We have more to do and must improve palliative and hospice care, educate families on pain management and increase resources for mental health services.”
