Citizens to make cases for “death with dignity,” against “physician assisted suicide”

All eyes in the Statehouse this evening will be on a witness chair the center of the House chamber.

That’s where citizens will have two minutes to make their cases for or against legislation that would permit doctors to hasten the deaths of terminally ill patients.

The two-hour public hearing begins at 5, and we’ll have real-time coverage of the event here at vermontpressbureau.com.

We’ll have some short vignettes featuring some of the more compelling testimony, as well as a look at who showed up, what side they represent, and how public input could impact prospects for the legislation.

You can listen to the hearing live online at Vermont Public Radio, or head over to vpt.org to watch Vermont Public Television’s live stream.
