Burzichelli, Eustace & Danielsenís Aid in Dying for the Terminally Ill Act Approved by AssemblyMeasure Would Create a Thorough Process to Allow Terminally Ill Patients to Choose Their End of Life Option
The Assembly voted 41-28-5 Thursday to approve the New Jersey Aid in Dying for the Terminally Ill Act sponsored by Assembly Democrats John Burzichelli, Tim Eustace and Joe Danielsen to create a process for terminally ill patients who wish for medicinal assistance to end their lives.
"This discussion is about revisiting a statute last looked at in 1978 that never took into account an individual's right to control their body and their circumstances," said Burzichelli (D-Gloucester/Salem/Cumberland). "Like society, medicine, palliative care and hospice services have changed dramatically since then. While there are many choices available right now that may be right for certain people, there is one more choice, not currently available, that deserves an honest discussion."
