I just became aware this week that there is no law banning assisted suicide in the state of Georgia. It was thought that there was a law that criminalized SOME assisted suicides, however this week the Georgia Supreme Court unanimously ruled to criminalize assisted suicide violates free speech. This is outrageous! The intentional killing of a person is not free speech and should not be tolerated in a civil and moral society. We need a law in Georgia banning all assisted suicides. My hope is that pro life citizens in Georgia in large numbers will immediately contact our elected representatives and encourage them to introduce a law banning assisted suicide in the state of Georgia. It is frustrating and sad to learn that a law is not already in place. Please take a few short minutes to contact your representatives and share this news with all your pro life friends. Below is a link to a news story from yesterday's AJC.

Below is the email I sent to my state representatives.
I am deeply troubled by the news this week that the Georgia Supreme Court unanimously ruled that laws against assisted suicide is a violation of free speech. This is an outrageous conclusion! The intentional killing of a person is not free speech and should not be tolerated in a civil and moral society. We need a law in Georgia banning all assisted suicides. I am requesting that you introduce a law banning all assisted suicides in the state of Georgia. I look forward to hearing back from you on this most important issue and for your support for a ban on assisted suicide. Thank you for your time and consideration.
Thank you for taking a couple minutes out of your day to write about this very important issue, and for sharing this information with family and friends.
