Your comments were heard loud and clear!
Yesterday, the Joint Commission on Health Care took decisive action on the recent assisted suicide study, on which the Virginia Catholic Conference and so many of you submitted comments. By a vote of 10-6, the commission voted for the option we recommended: to take no action on the study.
The commission received nearly 3,000 public comments against legalizing assisted suicide … many of them yours. In fact, comments against assisted suicide outnumbered comments for assisted suicide 8-1!
Thank you for standing up for life: You were indeed heard!

In prayer and in public, your voices are urgently needed to bring Gospel values to bear on vital decisions being made by those who represent you.
