New Yorkers for Life is very pleased to report that the 2015 state legislative session is over, and that neither abortion expansion nor physician-assisted suicide legislation became law.

Physician-assisted suicide must not become legal in the State of New York. Physician-assisted suicide is based on the false assumption that life is not worth living for terminally ill persons because of the disabilities that they endure; also, it creates an untenable conflict between the physician’s role as healer and the provision of life-ending drugs. Legalizing physician-assisted suicide could lead patients to unnecessarily take their own lives based on flawed diagnoses, or on pressure from relatives, medical professionals, or insurance companies.

In June, Sen. John Bonacic (R-Mt. Hope) announced his support for physician-assisted suicide and signed on as the prime sponsor of physician-assisted suicide legislation (S.5814-Bonacic/A.5261-B-Paulin) in the State Senate. Despite the Senator's disappointing decision, none of the three physician-assisted suicide bills that were introduced in the New York State Legislature this year received a floor vote in the Assembly or the Senate.

While abortion expansion legislation passed the Assembly, it was not acted upon in the Senate. Furthermore, the non-abortion-related components of Gov. Andrew Cuomo's Women's Equality Act each passed both houses of the Legislature as stand-alone bills. The passage of the other WEA bills will make abortion expansion less palatable to legislators, as they will no longer feel pressure to vote for abortion expansion in order that other bills in the WEA package might become law. This is good news for women, for unborn babies, and for all New Yorkers.
