New Jersey Death Bill Rejected

Bradley Mattes   |   January 29, 2016

The New Jersey State Legislature could give Congress a lesson in working together.  Democrats and Republican state senators worked in a bipartisan effort to stop a dangerous assisted-suicide bill jam packed with bad stuff.  The bill had no requirements for a patient mental health evaluation, pain relief consultation or oversight to see if they were actually willing to take the lethal drugs.  No medical person had to supervise the killing.  Worse yet, it allowed for a third party to make the death request, who could be an heir financially benefiting from the patient’s death.  It didn’t require notification of family members and it protects those involved even if they coerced out of self-interest. The New Jersey State Senate did their job, listened to the people and blocked this death bill.
