Our Hawaii legislature has already heard a bill to reduce suicides in Hawaii by 25% by establishing September as Suicide Prevention Month. We are supporting this effort, but want to discourage the legislature from promoting assisted suicide (HB1703 introduced by MIZUNO, BROWER, CACHOLA, EVANS, ICHIYAMA, KONG, C. LEE, MORIKAWA, QUINLAN, SAN BUENAVENTURA, SAY, SOUKI, TAKAYAMA, THIELEN, Creagan, Learmont).

In March 2017, our parishes successfully helped to defeat assisted suicide through petitions of 13,000 signatures. This time, we need to substantially increase this figure!

• Download the flyer below to see assisted suicide bills introduced this session (taken from Hawaii Family Forum’s February 2, 2018 Legislative Week in Review).

• Click on this link www.catholichawaii.org/hcc to sign an online petition or sign the petition at weekend Mass February 17-18.

Thank you for supporting life from beginning to a natural end!
