Minnesota Assisted Suicide bills are likely dead.

I have great news. The Minnesota Alliance for Ethical Healthcare reported that companion assisted suicide bills HF 1930 and SF 1813 did not receive a hearing before the first legislative deadline (March 10). This is great news as these bills are likely dead in 2023.

In my article concerning the Minnesota companion assisted suicide bills I explained that these bills were far more permissive than the Oregon assisted suicide law and the bills used language, such as creating a "standard of care" to define assisted suicide as medical treatment in Minnesota.

The Minnesota Alliance refered to these bills as the most aggressive in America while thanking their supporters for the nearly 1,000 messages that were sent to state legislators who are heard from constituents that Minnesota needs to support real healthcare throughout life's journey that doesn't target those who are vulnerable and at-risk.
