Assisted Suicide Now Legal In Washington, D.C.

By Michael T. Lahti

The Washington, D.C. city council recently passed an aid-in-dying law that was signed by the mayor. Congress had 30 days to overturn it; but the 30 days period expired last week, and the law became effective on February 18, 2017.  

Although there was a resolution from the House Oversight Committee, the resolution wasn't voted on by the House, so the law became effective.  This makes Washington, D.C., the seventh place in the U.S. to legalize assisted suicide.
