The day after TJ used medical aid in dying to end his suffering, a cruel bill was introduced in the Montana legislature that would not only outlaw the practice of aid in dying, but criminalize doctors for helping their patients when they need them the most.
House bill 536 says that doctors who prescribe aid-in-dying medication could be charged with homicide, a crime that is punishable by up to the death penalty in Montana! I am outraged that doctors could be charged with murder for helping their dying patients find peace in their final days and the people of Montana need to let lawmakers know that this is absolutely outrageous.
