“The responsibilities of faithful citizenship don’t end on Election Day. We must work with our elected officials — whether we voted for them or not — to make our communities and world better places to live for everyone.”
The Minnesota Catholic Conference is calling on Catholics to contact their legislators and urge them to reject a bill that would legalize assisted suicide in Minnesota. The End of Life Options Act(HF 2152), which would allow terminally ill adults to choose to end their lives, was introduced March 7 in the Minnesota House of Representatives.
With the start of the 2019 state legislative session on Jan. 8, Catholics have an opportunity to continue the work of faithful citizenship by assisting elected officials in creating public policies that promote human life and dignity.
Our participation in the public square allows us to influence law and policymaking to uphold and pursue the good of every human person which in turn invites us to have opportunities to love our neighbor through the political arena.
