New Hampshire House Strikes Down Assisted Suicide Bill
The New Hampshire House of Representatives on Wednesday rejected a bill that would have legalized assisted suicide.
Lawmakers voted 242-113 to kill the measure. In November, the House Judiciary Committee had recommended against passing the bill by a wide margin, 14-3.
HB 304, introduced by Representative Charles Weed, would have allowed a "mentally competent person who is 18 years of age or older" who was deemed terminally ill to request a fatal drug through a written request.
