Brad Wenstrup, DPM, US Representative (R-OH), in a Sep. 29, 2017 House Congressional Resolution, H.Con. Res. 80, available at, stated:

“Expressing the sense of the Congress that assisted suicide (sometimes referred to as death with dignity, end-of-life options, aid-in-dying, or similar phrases) puts everyone, including those most vulnerable, at risk of deadly harm and undermines the integrity of the health care system…

[A]assisted suicide most directly threatens the lives of people who are elderly, experience depression, have a disability, or are subject to emotional or financial pressure to end their lives.”
