Hawaii Governor signs dangerous physician-assisted suicide bill into law

Americans United for Life is extremely disappointed by Hawaii Governor David Ige’s decision to sign dangerous legislation establishing a new state-sanctioned system for physician-assisted suicide. This new law flies in the face of the 42 states that affirmatively prohibit physician-assisted suicide and impose criminal penalties on anyone who helps another person end his or her life, as well as the two states who have already defeated assisted-suicide bills this legislative session: Connecticut and Massachusetts. AUL strongly opposes such fatally flawed legislation and will continue to fight against it in other states.
