Hawaii Assisted suicide defeated. The bill was a big fat fib.
Alex SchadenbergExecutive Director – Euthanasia Prevention CoalitionI have amazing news to share. Hawaii assisted suicide SB 1129 was defeated by being sent back for amendments. Hawaii political leaders listened and understood that the assisted suicide bill was different than what the assisted suicide lobby was saying.The paternalism of the assisted suicide lobby astounds me. They assume that legislators will not read the language of the bill but vote based on sound bites alone. Hawaii legislators read the bill. Hawaii News Now stated:On Thursday, lawmakers said the bill is poorly written and would need considerable changes.The House Health Committee deferred the bill,
