Last-Minute Vote Switches Keep Assisting Suicide Illegal in Hawaii

By Jenny Nolan, Legislative Assistant
NRLC Department of Medical Ethics

A bill to legalize assisting suicide in Hawaii was defeated 14-11 in the state Senate May 2 when three state senators who had previously voted in favor of it switched their votes.
