Physician assisted suicide hearing this week

Posted: Updated:

A large crowd is expected at a hearing this week in Montpelier regarding physician assisted suicide.

It will take place Tuesday evening in the main House chamber.

Supporters and opponent will have a chance to weigh in on whether physicians should be allowed to prescribe a lethal dose of medications to terminally ill patients who wish to take their own lives.

Governor Peter Shumlin has come out in support of the legislation.
