Delaware Legislation Legalizing Assisted Suicide & Euthanasia Awaits Governor’s Action

By Sarah Mueller 

Delaware Governor John Carney (pictured below) could soon decide whether to sign legislation legalizing medical-assisted dying.

Sometimes known as “physician-” or “medically assisted suicide,” the legislation would allow terminally ill people with less than six months to live to request and ingest medication to end their lives.

The House passed the bill 21-14, with four Democrats absent in April. The vote in the Senate originally failed 9-9, but passed days later 11-10.

This is the first time Carney, who is in his final year in office, will have to decide on this issue. He can sign the bill, veto it or allow it to take effect without signing it. Carney has 10 days to act on a bill after it is sent to him.

EIN Presswire Obstructed My Press Release

I am a lawyer licensed to practice in Washington State, now living in Montana. I have used EIN Presswire for years, but not on a large scale.

My most recent published release was on February 15, 2022.

In late June 2024, my web designer informed me that my remaining EIN press releases were due to expire in two weeks.

We also learned that the Delaware legislature had approved a bill legalizing assisted suicide and euthanasia. The governor, John Carney, was to the best of our knowledge undecided. We decided to use one of the press releases, to encourage him to reject the bill.

We prepared the press release, using language similar to our prior release.
