Good news on Minnesota's Assisted Suicide Proposal

Minnesota's assisted suicide proposal was withdrawn by its sponsor during its hearing today, which apparently drew impassioned testimony from both supporters and opponents, according to this report from our local paper.  Apparently the sponsor (Sen. Chris Eaton, DFL-Brooklyn Center) understood the opposition as resulting from "misunderstandings" about the legislation, rather than a very clear understanding and rejection of the proposal.  She's planning on re-introducing it next year,  because "it would be easier to pass if DFLers [Minnesota-speak for Democrats] regained control of the House in November."
