The “sanctity of life” can not start with no abortion and end with “no you must live even though you are terminally ill” mentality.
What about life from birth to the end?
There has to be some sort of requirement to protect that part of life.
Imagine if we took the millions of dollars spent trying to overturn Roe v Wade and defeating dignified death laws and spent it promoting real life??
I wish Ige was as passionate about competently running this state.
Hawaii 2018 H.B.NO. 2739
This bill leads and uses double speak through out. Countering the first statement it should say that over 20 states have rejected this in 2017-18.
Allowing an heir to be one of the witnesses in the sign up process eviscerates flaunted safeguards.
“These rigorous safeguards…” are unenforceable
“The lie of Self administered” is mentioned 11 times is used to deflect normal scrutiny while the provision to have an ordinary witness to the administration is missing.
Specifically active euthanasia is allowed (page 30 line 16 and page 33 line 8&9) which makes this the most unsafe and subject to abuse of all the states, counter to the author’s claim.
Again like previous offerings this process can start and end in death in 16 days, all before the rest of the family learns. Immunity for predatory corporations, heirs, strangers, guardians, care givers…. is immediate and records are prohibited to be used in investigations.
Reject this hollow state sanctioned suicide and euthanasia bill.

The bill says nothing of what you claim it says.
Let us read it together and you will agree that it is poor public policy.
I’ve read it and agree with it 100%
Then you noticed that family could suddenly (16 days) learn their Mom is dead.
Or that an heir can witness the sign up process.
That there is no witness required to honor their choice of self administration. And immunity is instant for predators with no investigation allowed. That the doctor my administer the poison without the Mom knowing it. Do you want page and line numbers? Sound like prudent public policy?
Does not say that at all.
It says NOTHING as you claim it says.
Perhaps maybe you lack comprehension skills?
At any event, you need not fear this bill.
You do not qualify for its most important qualification: being of sound mind.
Want page and line numbers? Or just relax and look the other way as Tomorrow is Disability Day of Mourning to remember those that were killed by their family. Over 60% of family murders are done by family. But just relax this is still good policy.
I’ve read the bill. It says NOTHING you say it says.
Are you familiar with double speak? In 2011 I attended my first hearing and mentioned the double speak that was in the bill. The legislators just nodded their heads. I told them we do not do business that way. You know promise one thing and deliver another. It is just part of their industry so you have to be skeptical as you read. Just saying.
Hope your House kills the killing bill HB2739.
I could support this bill, if and only if it applied to Democrats only.
We should allow them to kill themselves as they wish. Everyone
else’s life is very precious and must be preserved wherever possible.
Well I see it did not take long for the truly ignorant idiots to chime in here!
When you have only Democrats debating and voting on bills, I sure it should apply only to them.
The get your a$$ out and either run for office or vote or do both.
When you have a population of slaves that refuse to leave the plantation, voting is pretty useless.
That’s the attitude that elected an orange haired baboon $hithole to the Oval Office.
Hope you like caviar and vodka comrade.
Well, I see that some people here are already definitely brain dead!
