Who's Fighting End of Life Choice?

For a summary of the amendments submitted to health care bill 3962, see here. And don't miss the submission from Louisiana's Boustany to override state law to end Death with Dignity and prevent end of life counseling:

Boustany (LA)


Would define “suicide,” “assisted suicide,” “euthanasia,” and “mercy killing” to model the Assisted Suicide Funding Restriction Act of 1997 (Public Law 105-12), regardless of the definition of these terms under state law. This would prevent the end-of-life planning provisions in H.R. 3962 (sections 240 and 1233) from compelling federal taxpayers to facilitate assisted suicide.
