National Right to Life has published an article on us and our neighbor “Physician Assisted Suicide faces continued pushback in New Hampshire and Vermont”. The article gives a good overview of the national fight as well:
Three states have these controversial laws, Washington, Oregon, and Vermont. The high court in Montana found that physicians can raise the defense that someone consented if brought to court –opening the door to euthanasia. Also, a judge in New Mexico has ruled that an assisted suicide is somehow medical treatment, creating confusion on the status of the law in that state. This decision is currently being appealed by Attorney General Gary King to the state Supreme Court.
