Hawaii attorney general rules doctor-prescribed suicide illegal

According to WND.com, the Hawaii attorney general has issued an opinion that under state law, doctors may not prescribe fatal doses of medication, blasting a hole in the arguments from the Hemlock Society, now called Compassion and Choices. State Sen. Josh Green, a doctor, had asked for the opinion after learning from an Alliance Defense Fund-allied attorney that the pro-euthanasia organization was arguing that state law allows for physicians to assist in suicides.
“Depressed patients need understanding and sound medical treatment, not encouragement to kill themselves. State law reflects this, and no one should believe the recent falsehoods that pro-death proponents have spread about the law. The Hawaii attorney general has clearly concluded that state law does not permit doctor-prescribed death and that any physician who participates in it can be prosecuted,” said Honolulu attorney Jim Hochberg, one of nearly 2,100 ADF-affiliated attorneys.
