Lawmakers on the public health committee struggled Friday with a bill that allows a terminally-ill person to end their life. Lawmakers on both sides of the issue set politics aside and used their personal experience to guide them in making the decision to send the bill to the House.
“This is an individual’s decision to end life on their own terms,” Rep. Jonathan Steinberg D-Westport, says.
The bill which passed the committee overwhelmingly was difficult and personal. It didn’t have anything to do with politics or party affiliation.
