Assisted suicide is being promoted once again in New Jersey, going through the Assembly Judiciary meeting. This bill made it through the Assembly twice in previous legislative sessions, but failed to garner enough votes in the NJ Senate. Now, with the election of a new Governor and new members in the Legislature, the supporters of this bill are trying again.
On Monday, March 12, the bill was the subject of a public hearing of the Assembly Judiciary Committee. Disability Rights advocates were on hand to testify against the bill.
