Astoundingly wonderful news! On March 7th, the Hawaii State Senate passed SB 1129, an Oregon-style aid in dying bill, by an vote of 22 to 3. The bill now goes to the Hawaii House of Representatives. This overwhelming majority gives hope that Hawaii will soon become the seventh US state to make aid in dying legal.
Our hats off to the wonderful people at the Hawaii Death With Dignity Society and the Death With Dignity National Center, who have achieved this great victory. Sign the card thanking our far-sighted and public-spirited Hawaii legislators and read the full history of the Hawaii effort so far!
