Death with Dignity National Center reports on the developments in Washington DC, both good and bad news. As of July 15 the Death with Dignity Act is in full force, implying that competent DC citizens may use the option to die with dignity should they suffer from a terminal illness. Still – and that is the bad news – opponents try to eliminate it by using a bill containing a rider repealing the Act. So, the fight continues. For more information go to the DWD NC website.
