To die with dignity and choice is legal in Montana (and also in Washington and Oregon) if I am terminally ill, mentally competent and physically able to self-medicate. And if my physician of choice is willing and legally able to provide me with prescriptions that will enable me to be in control of my dying (if I so choose) with less pain and suffering – for myself and for my family and friends.
I am extremely grateful for this legal right to die with dignity. Yet I am extremely sad that my husband, who wished this for himself, died before this choice became legal.
