House Bill 505 Physician-Assisted Suicide Struck Down in the Montana Senate

HELENA, Mont. (AP) — The Montana Senate has rejected a measure that would criminalize doctors and caregivers who help terminally ill people kill themselves. House Bill 505 was struck down in a 27-23 floor vote after senators removed it from the Senate Judiciary Committee, where it failed to get a majority of support from committee members. Supporters of criminalizing physician-assisted suicide say the measure would prevent elder abuse. Backers of assisted suicide say it preserves the dignity of the dying.
