Compassion & Choices' Mission is to Promote Suicide

The push to enact DC Act 21-577  is being spearheaded by the suicide advocacy group, Compassion
& Choices.

Compassion & Choices was formed in 2004 as the result of a merger/takeover of two other organizations.[1] One of these organizations was the former Hemlock Society, originally formed by Derek Humphry.[2]

• Stop Assisted Suicide;
• Stop Euthanasia;
• Prevent Legal Elder Abuse;
• Preserve Government Transparency and Integrity; &
• Don't Let the District of Columbia Become Corrupt Like Oregon.

By Maragaret Dore, Esq., MBA, January 12, 2016


I am an attorney in Washington State where assisted suicide and euthanasia are legal.[1] Our law is based on a similar law in Oregon. Both laws are similar to Act 21-577 (“The Act”).[2]

The Act Creates a New Path of Elder Abuse, Which Is Legal

By Margaret Dore, Esq, MBA

Elder abuse is already a problem in the District of Columbia. Failing to reject the Act will make a bad situation worse. See below.

Few States Allow Assisted Suicide

By Margaret K. Dore, Esq., MBA

"Physician-assisted suicide is no
longer legal in New Mexico."
In the last six years, five states have strengthened their laws against assisted suicide: Arizona, Louisiana, Georgia, Idaho and Ohio.[1]

Last year, the New Mexico Supreme Court overturned a decision recognizing a right to physician aid in dying, meaning physician-assisted suicide.[2] Physician-assisted suicide is no longer legal in New Mexico.
