LETTER: To Die With Dignity

By Beacon Staff

Very simply, I wish to die with dignity.

My heartfelt hop is that this freedom remains an option for Montanans. It is already legal in Oregon and Washington state.

This freedom was recognized in Montana in 2009 by means of the Baxter case.

Now, Great Falls Sen. Anders Blewett of Great Falls has written Senate Bill 167, which provides clear guidelines for doctors and for patients to implement the Baxter decision.

So I urge support for SB 167 by all of us who wish to die with dignity and with compassion and choice. Our loved ones will be supportive also.
