Death with Dignity law passed by Council in Washington D.C.

The Council of the District of Columbia (Washington D.C.) approved a Death with Dignity law. It was on final passage, with a 11 to 2 vote in favor. The legislation is supported by 67 percent of District residents. The bill is now sent to Mayor Bowser. A spokesperson for the mayor said Ms. Bowser expects the bill to become law, after which it will go to Congress for review. This federal review is necessity, since District of Columbia is not a State and thus needs federal approval. Death with Dignity National Center, having been supporting the Washington Bill, is optimistic that the bill will become law in Washington D.C.
