Vermont rejects Insisted Suicide

From LifeNews:

A bill to legalize assisted suicide in Vermont has died for the second consecutive legislative session. A House committee held a hearing on the bill but dropped the issue when other lawmakers indicated its prospects were severely limited.

The House Human Services Committee held a public hearing and took two days worth of testimony, but lawmakers in favor of making Vermont the second state in the nation to legalize the practice will have to wait until next year.

The gavel fell on the legislative session on Saturday and lawmakers will be headed back to the state capital to deal with budget issues, but they won't be taking up the assisted suicide measure.

I think that the pro-death crowd may have believed their own hype following the murder of Terri Schiavo, and assumed they could get some laws passed. That's problem when you deal in evil and lies, you forget the truth that most people aren't Nazis.
