David Ripley: Senate Approves Assisted Suicide Ban

March 12th, 2011 by Halli

Idaho Chooses Life

The Idaho Senate approved SB1070 on Friday morning (03.11) by an overwhelming 31-2 vote, with two members of the Senate missing from the floor.
Sen. Russ Fulcher led debate for the bill, pointing out that the legislation was intended to protect current medical care standards in Idaho. He was joined by Sen. Steve Vick, one of the co-sponsors, in pointing out that Idaho’s current lack of statute in this area leaves us vulnerable to the efforts of groups like Compassion & Choices – the organization that brought assisted suicide to Montana, Oregon and Washington.

SB1070 is a top legislative priority for Idaho Chooses Life.

Several Democrats voted for the legislation, including Sen. Minority Leader Edgar Malepeai of Pocatello.

The legislation now goes to a House committee for hearing.
