Legislators debate end of life
by Charlie Butts, OneNewsNow
Vermont’s Senate has passed an amended doctor-assisted suicide bill that now goes to the House, where the original language could be restored.
Despite a warning from the attorney general’s office about legal issues, lawmakers approved the End of Life Choice bill on Wednesday. Patterned after an Oregon law, it would have established doctor-assisted suicide, freeing physicians and families from liability if a terminally ill patient chooses to hasten his or her own death.
But the measure was amended before getting passed on to the House. Supporters hope it will be returned to its original form to the Senate, while opponents hope the bill is done.
I’m surprised this isn’t already in Obamacare.
Or maybe it is and they just haven’t gotten that far in reading the bill.
