Montana Defeats Assisted Suicide!

Big News from Montana!
 
Yesterday, SB 220, which had sought to legalize assisted suicide in Montana was defeated and then tabled in the Senate Judiciary Committee.  

The vote to defeat SB 220 was 7 to 5.

The vote to table the bill was 9 to 3.

 
The credit goes to Bradley Williams and Montanans Against Assisted Suicide and the many other people and organizations who worked to defeat assisted suicide in Montana.

Way to go!!!!
