New Jersey Governor Signs Bill Legalizing Assisted Suicide
True Pundit, Apr 14, 2019

Democratic New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy signed a bill Friday legalizing assisted suicide for people who are terminally ill.

The Medical Aid in Dying for the Terminally Ill Act passed the state Assembly by a vote of 41-33, and the state Senate approved the legislation 21-16.

“Allowing residents with terminal illnesses to make end-of-life choices for themselves is the right thing to do,” Murphy said in an official statement Friday announcing the signing. “By signing this bill today, we are providing terminally ill patients and their families with the humanity, dignity, and respect that they so richly deserve at the most difficult times any of us will face.”
