Maine Becomes 8th State To Legalize Assisted Suicide

462370d

Maine legalized medically assisted suicide on Wednesday, becoming the eighth state to allow terminally ill people to end their lives with prescribed medication.

Democratic Gov. Janet Mills, who had previously said she was unsure about the bill, signed it in her office.

“It is my hope that this law, while respecting the right to personal liberty, will be used sparingly,” said Mills.

Maine’s measure will allow doctors to prescribe a fatal dose of medication to terminally ill people. It declares that obtaining or administering life-ending medication is not suicide under state law, thereby legalizing the practice often called medically assisted suicide.

  1. Great people do great things within the framework of the law, it is now time to introduce and enact post-natal abortion. No time limits either.

  2. What did you expect from a liberal democrat governor that has no value for life? These democrats are pro death.
