New Hampshire Committee Votes Against Assisted Suicide reports that the New Hampshire House Judiciary Committee has rejected a bill to legalize assisted suicide in a 14-3 vote last week.

“This is a significant victory,” said the Alex Schadenberg, Chairman of the Euthanasia Prevention Coalition. However, he added, “This does not mean that the bill is completely dead. The legislature might reject the recommendation of the committee and approve the bill. But considering the lopsided vote at the committee level, it is unlikely that the bill in New Hampshire will be approved.”

We’ll be hosting Alex Schadenberg at the University of Toronto shortly to speak about euthanasia and the law in Canada, particularly in light of Bill C-384 and Motion 388.
