Montana legalizes euthanasia

Catholic World News - January 04, 2010

Montana has become the third state to legalize euthanasia after its high court ruled December 31 that “we find nothing in Montana Supreme Court precedent or Montana statutes indicating that physician aid in dying is against public policy.”

“What the court did, in essence, was to place the issue back into the hands of the legislature, where it should be,” said Jeff Laszloffy of the Montana Family Foundation. “They said there’s nothing currently in statute that prohibits the practice. It’s now up to us to go into the next legislative session fully armed and ready to pass statutory language that says, once and for all, that physician assisted suicide is illegal in Montana.”
