Idaho Bill Would Ban Assisted Suicide

State lawmakers have opened the door to an end-of-life debate this session with legislation to ban assisted suicide in Idaho. Republican Sen. Russ Fulcher introduced a bill Friday that would make it a felony to assist in the suicide, or attempted suicide, of another person. The Fulcher bill, introduced in the Senate State Affairs Committee, says there is a national effort under way to create a “right” to assisted suicide for people who are dying and his bill aims to keep that movement from encroaching upon Idaho, which is already surrounded by states that allow some form of assisted suicide/Associated Press.

Question: Do you support this legislation that would ban assisted suicide in Idaho?
