In response to the advancement of NJ State Assembly Resolution 1504, the “Aid in Dying for the Terminally Ill Act,” Rabbi Avrohom Gordimer, Chairman of the Rabbinic Circle of the Coalition for Jewish Values, made the following statement:

“The Aid in Dying for the Terminally Ill Act constitutes an assault on the sanctity of life and must be opposed by every caring citizen. The Act would sanction the voluntary taking of human life and would authorize others, especially medical professionals, to assist in such. It is contrary to Biblical, moral values and introduces a slippery slope whereby government licenses professionals to assess the value of people’s lives and act lethally upon these assessments.”
