Georgia Ordered to Return Seized Funds to Assisted Suicide Org.

The Georgia ledger-enquirer reports that the state has been ordered to return $330,000 in seized funds to Final Exit Network, an assisted suicide advocacy group.

The funds were seized following the arrest of several group members who intended to help John Celmer, a terminal cancer patient, hasten his death.

For more on the case, see here, and here.

Note: a sole commenter on the ledger-enquirer site states that preventing assisted suicide is equivalent to violating one's religious freedom.
