This bill, which is designated as the “New Jersey Death with Dignity Act,” would allow an adult New Jersey resident, who has the capacity to make health care decisions and who has been determined by that individual’s attending and consulting physicians to be suffering from a terminal disease that will cause death within six months, to obtain medication that the patient may self-administer to end his life in a humane and dignified manner.

    How come animals deserve to die humanely, but people have to die like animals? If people feel so strongly that animals shouldn’t suffer, then people should also have the option not to suffer.

    I am currently a cancer survivor. Prior to my cancer diagnosis (January 2013) I had never had given much thought to this issue. However, now having gone through surgery and six (6) months of chemotherapy (and living day to day with the prospect the cancer may return) I feel strongly that if I were to receive a terminal diagnosis I would want this option available to me.
