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.

    This is actually relevant because by the time Obama starts his 8th term no one will want to live anymore anyway.

    Good point IronyCurtin but I’m thinking a 3rd term would be my breaking point.

    @ Unneutral -

    If the 22nd Amendment was repealed, I would in fact vote for Obama to a third term on this one condition…..

    …. that ALL car/truck/SUV dealership commercials on all airwaves, cable, internet, or any future communication process, go the way that cigarette commercials went and be BANNED “In Perpetuam”.

    Lefties against Capital Punishment are trying to say it’s cruel and unusual to use the three chemicals used to do away with convicted murderers. Funny how those very same chemicals are just fine if used in doctor assisted suicide…
