The Salem News Letter to the Editor: Pass ‘death with dignity’ bill
An excerpt from The Salem News letter to the editor by Marblehead resident Betty Breuhaus, “Pass ‘death with dignity’ bill,” published Jan. 29, 2020:
I’m writing about the important end-of-life healthcare issue of death with dignity. It’s also known as medical, compassionate aid in dying for people who are terminally ill, mentally capable, and facing great pain and suffering at the end…
Maine, Vermont, New Jersey and six other states, plus Washington D.C., have already passed a death with dignity law over the past 22 years… I think it’s time for Massachusetts to do the same.
