Last night, Wyoming House Bill 122 “Death with Dignity” or, Doctor prescribed suicide, was filed. It is hard to tell what sort of traction it may or may not have at this point. However, I think it would be a mistake for us to wait and find out. So, I have attached a video, length 6 min., with some discussion points, as well as mentioning the importance of a palliative care bill that is in the works over in the Senate. Please consider watching the video and entering into dialogue with others about this important issue. Stay tuned for further updates!
