Videos Opposing Assisted Suicide

  • The Alvarez Family Story

They invite viewers to join them in continuing his fight for access to authentic health care, and against assisted suicide.

  • Cecelia's Story
    Cecilia Soñé, a nurse practitioner, says that legalizing assisted suicide sends the false message that some lives are worth caring for and others are not. Watch to learn how she went into medicine to help heal patients, not to help kill them!

  • Luke's Story
    You don't discourage suicide by assisting suicide. "Every suicide is tragic – whether you're old or young, healthy or sick, your life is worth living," says Luke Maxwell, 19, who survived an attempt to take his own life.
  • John's Story: Beyond Independence
    Born without arms, John Foppe speaks to a way of life beyond independence, namely inter-dependence: Together we are more. Assisted suicide sells everyone short, so in times of illness or disability, he encourages us to "step into life!"
