Colorado Lawmakers Vote Down Right-To-Die Bill
A Colorado House committee on Friday voted 8-5 to reject a proposed law that would have allowed individuals with terminal illnesses to end their lives. Colorado's proposal was modeled after Oregon's right-to-die law. It would have required two physicians to approve the life-ending medication and individuals to prove they are of sound mind when making the decision.
