SB 165 All But Dead

SB 165, which would have legalized assisted suicide and euthanasia in Nevada, failed to make it out of its house of origin, so that it is now all but dead. According to 3 News Las Vegas:

While the bills the couldn't make it out of committee are technically off the table, they won't officially be out of question until the Legislative Session ends in June.
The next major deadline comes on May 17.

Patient Protections Are Mere Window Dressing to Lull the Public Into Accepting Assisted Suicide and Euthanasia

By Margaret Dore, Esq., MBA

Nevada's pending euthanasia bill, S.B. 165, sets forth patient protections in sections 3 through 29, described as “safeguards, procedures, written requirements and reporting functions.”[1] The bill also repeatedly says that actions are to be done in “accordance” with the provisions of sections 3 through 29.[2] For example, the bill states:
Death resulting from a patient self-administering a controlled substance that is designed to end his or her life in accordance with the provisions of sections 3 to 29, inclusive, of this act does not constitute suicide or homicide. (Emphasis added).[3]

SB 261, a bill that would have legalized assisted suicide and euthanasia, has died with the close of Nevada's legislative session. The bill passed the Senate in an 11 to 10 vote. The House Health Committee held a hearing, but took no action.

Thank you to everyone else who worked so hard to make this happen.
