“Death with Dignity” being discussed in Colonie

COLONIE, N.Y. (NEWS10) – A panel is gathering in the city to discuss pending ‘death with dignity’ legislation in the state.

Death with dignity would allow terminally ill, mentally competent adults to request a prescription for drugs that would end their lives, instead of waiting for their illness to take them.

The panel is meeting at the Sanford Town Library in Colonie and it will feature advocates for the issue trying to raise awareness. It will start at 12:15 p.m. Tuesday afternoon.
