SB 128 Information

Dear Brother Knight,

The California Legislature is currently considering a bill, SB 128, which would allow physicians to prescribe to their patients the means by which they may legally commit suicide.

Numerous associations of health care professionals, including the American Medical Association, the American College of Physicians, and others, have joined California’s bishops in opposing physician assisted suicide. A recent Knights of Columbus-Marist poll found that 61% of Americans don’t want doctors prescribing or administering lethal drugs.

Supreme Knight Carl Anderson recently stated, “The American people are deeply concerned about the possible tragic consequences of this sort of legislation, and want doctors to heal and relieve pain rather than to be agents of death. It is not surprising that this legislation has failed so widely since it would sow distrust in the doctor-patient relationship. The most vulnerable — those with an incorrect diagnosis, as well as the mentally ill and depressed, and those with lower quality health insurance — would be particularly at risk.”

The Knights of Columbus was founded to help those on the margins of society. Today, those on the margins of life itself are in danger, and charity compels us to speak on their behalf. Please contact your legislators to register your opposition to SB 128. To do so, click on the following link:

Thank you for your attention to this urgent matter. With your help, the Knights of Columbus can once again make our voices heard in support of life in California.

Sincerely,

Knights of Columbus

 

 

Ernie O’Leary


Our council treasurer and District Marshal Ernie O’Leary passed away suddenly April 16th. Ernie was a Past Grand Knight, Past Faithful Navigator, District Deputy and former Color Corps Commander. In addition to being an Honorary Life Member of the Fourth Degree, he was a charter member of Christ Cathedral Assembly 3479. Ernie was a role model for what a Knight should be. He lived our principles of charity, unity, fraternity and patriotism. In his green cape and chapeau, he led the Color Corps in the Huntington Beach July 4th parade. As a proud Irishman, Ernie was a Past President of Division One of the Ancient Order of Hibernians and was an affiliate member of the religious Brothers of St. Patrick in Midway City. He was always ready to help, and we will miss his smile and enthusiasm.
