Nevada's pending euthanasia bill, S.B. 165, sets forth patient protections in sections 3 through 29, described as “safeguards, procedures, written requirements and reporting functions.” The bill also repeatedly says that actions are to be done in “accordance” with the provisions of sections 3 through 29. For example, the bill states:
Death resulting from a patient self-administering a controlled substance that is designed to end his or her life in accordance with the provisions of sections 3 to 29, inclusive, of this act does not constitute suicide or homicide. (Emphasis added).
More to the point, compliance with patient protections is not required; the protections are unenforceable; they are mere window dressing to lull the public into accepting assisted suicide and euthanasia.
Without actual patient protections, the bill must be rejected.
