CORNERSTONE COMMENTS ON ASSISTED-SUICIDE VOTE

HOUSE JUDICIARY KILLS DOCTOR-ASSISTED SUICIDE

Says voters are tired of radical pieces of social legislation

Concord, NH - Today, the House Judiciary Committee voted to kill the doctor-assisted suicide bill by a committee vote of 14-3.  The bill will now go to the full House with an ITL recommendation.  Commenting on the vote was Cornerstone-Action's Executive Director, Kevin Smith:

"It appears that after last Tuesday's elections the Judiciary Committee is finally getting the picture that New Hampshire citizens are tired of radical pieces of social legislation passing the House.  I applaud the committee for recognizing this was a deeply flawed bill that should have been dead on arrival."
