Week 12/2015 in the Death with Dignity Movement

.

Last week was marked by a long and emotional hearing in Connecticut on HB 7015 – An Act Providing a Medical Option of Compassionate Aid in Dying for Terminally Ill Adults. A Death with Dignity bill was introduced in Minnesota as SF 1880 – Minnesota Compassionate Care Act; Senate Bill 128 – California End of Life Option Act got US Senator Dianne Feinstein’s endorsement; and a bill criminalizing physician-assisted dying passed in the Montana House, portending the possibility of a ban.

These are the highlights of the most important developments in the movement around the United States from March 15 to March 21, 2015, with the corresponding media coverage.
