DC law legalizing assisted suicide is now in effect
Here is a story from LifeNews.com about recent developments in Washington, D.C. The DC City Council passed the law legalizing assisted suicide in 2016. Congress had an opportunity to prevent the law from going into effect but failed to do so. DC joins Oregon, Washington, Vermont, California, and Colorado as jurisdictions where laws explicitly authorize assisted suicide; the same situation exists in Montana through a judicial decision.
