Support death with dignity bill
To the Editor:
I greatly appreciated Dr. Michael Rousse's article in the August 18 "In My Opinion" column. Such open and honest information on end of life issues should help dispel the fear and negative propaganda surrounding these issues.
I hope the public and our representatives Howard Crawford and Richard Lawrence will support the death with dignity bill (H.247). This carefully crafted bill would give the terminally ill another choice and more control at the end of life. The bill would also protect the physicians who assist them.
I am glad that Patient Choice Vermont is advocating for death with dignity. You may want to visit www.patientschoices.org for more information about the bill.
