The National Council on Disability (NCD) has released a federal study, “The Danger of Assisted Suicide Laws,” revealing that assisted suicide laws are rife with dangers to people with disabilities. The NCD is an independent federal agency charged with advising the President, Congress and other federal agencies regarding policies, programs, practices, and procedures that affect people with disabilities.

Among its policy recommendations is this: “States should not legalize any form of assisted suicide or active euthanasia.” For more information on the study go to https://ncd.gov/newsroom/2019/federal-study-assisted-suicide-laws.
