Progress towards wider medical assisted choice in dying at life’s end……

With bipartisan backing, New Zealand has just passed a progressive law. Now, beginning on Nov. 6 of next year, doctors will be able to legally prescribe a lethal dose of medicine to patients suffering from terminal illnesses.

“What a great day to be a Kiwi,” said David Seymour, the lawmaker who had sponsored the act. New Zealand is now a kinder, more compassionate, more humane society.”

In the US, medical aid in dying, where a terminal patient can request a lethal pharmaceutical to self ingest to end their suffering, is now legal in nine states and the District of Columbia.
