Judge invents assisted suicide right in New Mexico

Wesley J. Smith, lawyer, author, and expert on life issues, points out that it only takes one judge to do what a legislature would not do, and this is the case in New Mexico.  New Mexico Judge Nan G. Nash found that “it is unconstitutional to prevent terminally ill people from receiving a lethal overdose from a doctor for the purpose of self-killing.”

The suit was brought by the group Compassion and Choices, formerly known as the Hemlock Society.  Their legal argument did not work, according to Smith, in Connecticut or Montana courts.
