The Dignity and Worth of Every Human Life Must be Protected by Society

 

Washington, D.C. – On Monday Governor Jerry Brown signed into law a bill legalizing physician-assisted suicide in California. The aged, depressed and disabled are among the citizens most vulnerable to laws of this type.

“California’s decision to allow doctors to determine whether or not a person is worthy of living is a huge mistake,” said Jeanne Mancini, President of the March for Life Education and Defense Fund. “This is a dark time for California and our country Whether a person is facing a terminal illness or has another serious health issue, his or her life has inherent value and deserves every respect and protection. Laws like the one Gov. Brown signed on Monday deny intrinsic human dignity and lead to the unraveling of a loving, healthy society where life is cherished at all stages..”

The March for Life in Washington, D.C., began as a small demonstration on January 22, 1974, the first anniversary of the now-infamous Supreme Court decisions in Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton and rapidly grew to be the largest pro-life event in the world.  The peaceful demonstration that has followed on this somber anniversary every year since is a witness to the truth concerning the greatest human rights violation of our time, abortion.

Jeanne Mancini, President of March for Life Education and Defense Fund, is available for interviews. For more information or to schedule an interview, please contact Ryan Hughes at RHughes@SBPublicAffairs.com or (703) 739-5920.
