Legislation stalled in Massachusetts

Posted:

BOSTON – Legislation in Massachusetts to allow terminally ill, mentally competent adults the right to give themselves life-ending drugs has stalled.

The Public Health Committee has recommended the bill be sent to a study committee.

The legislation would require the terminally ill to fill out a form stating they understand the drugs they are intended to result in death.

The request would also have to be witnessed by at least two other individuals.
