NJ assisted suicide legislation nears tipping point
Physician-assisted suicide has been considered by the state Legislature without passing for more than six years. Now, with the legislation likely to be brought to a vote soon, there may be enough votes necessary to get it passed.

The “Aid in Dying for Terminally Ill Act” (A1504) is expected to be up for a vote Oct. 29 in the Assembly. The state Senate could move an identical bill (S1072) forward if the Assembly bill passes.

The bill would allow terminally ill adults of sound mind to obtain drugs they could take to hasten their demise. If passed, the bill could be on Gov. Phil Murphy’s desk before end of year.
