The city council of the nation’s capital voted 11-2 recently in favor of a bill legalizing physician-assisted suicide.
Bill 21-38, the Death With Dignity Act, must pass the council once more and be signed by the mayor to go into effect. Congress would have the power to overturn it.
Dozens of pro-life and disability rights advocates in red as well as assisted suicide supporters in yellow filled the room to capacity and waited several hours before the vote took place.
“They shoot horses, don’t they?” one assisted suicide supporter quipped to LifeSiteNews.
