In a unanimous 5-0 ruling, the State Court of Appeals, the highest court in the state, has ruled against doctor assisted suicide. The court rejected the arguments of three terminally ill plaintiffs, two of whom have died since the case began. The court said that individuals have the right to reject treatment but that having a doctor prescribe life ending drugs is not a right guaranteed.
Supporters of physician assisted suicide are continuing to push for the State Legislature to enact a law making it legal for doctors to prescribe the drugs. The bill had passed the Assembly Health Committee in 2016 but was not acted upon in that committee during the 2017 session. Assisted suicide has been approved in a handful of states either through legislation, a public referendum or via the courts.
