This is a step in the right direction, if only it covered more medical conditions.
New Jersey is poised to become the eighth state to allow terminally ill patients to legally end their lives after a vote Monday that for years had eluded supporters of the so-called right-to-die movement.

With the Legislature narrowly approving the Medical Aid in Dying for the
Terminally Ill Act
, the bill now goes to Gov. Phil Murphy, a Democrat who pledged his support.

“Allowing terminally ill and dying residents the dignity to make end-of-life decisions according to their own consciences is the right thing to do. I look forward to signing this legislation into law,” Murphy said in
a statement.
