The Oregon House and Senate approve a bill that makes it illegal to assist another person commit suicide.  The bill is targeted at "suicide kits" sold over the Internet. The kits are not provided by doctors, but groups like GLAAD – “Good Life and Dignified Death,” who do not require physician consultation. The proposed law would make the sale of these kits a Class B felony, which would allow local authorities to go after sellers in other states. Some opponents of the legislation worry the bill would interfere with Oregon’s Death with Dignity Act, but chief sponsors say there is language in the legislation that protect Oregonians opportunities to seek out doctor-assisted suicide. The bill heads to the Governor for final approval.
