Week 19/2015 in the Death with Dignity Movement

News Scrabble

Last week (May 4 to May 10, 2015) the Vermont House approved a bill that would remove sunset provisions from the Patient Choice and Control at End of Life Act, the state’s Death with Dignity law. Because the representatives amended S.108 with a reporting clause, the Senate must approve the new version of the bill before Governor Shumlin signs it. Earlier, an amendment to repeal Act 39 was defeated 83 to 60. Representative Sandy Haas said in the media that seven patients have used the law since it passed in 2013.
