“The Mother Situation” https://goo.gl/7TFAuW is a darkly satirical, award winning, 7-minute film which illustrates the potential for abuse when assisted suicide is made legal. There is no question it could happen here in Vermont, where there are no requirements for oversight when prescriptions for suicide drugs are requested and filled. When a person dies after having requested a prescription under Act 39, no investigation into the circumstances of death will be undertaken, and the cause of death will be listed as the person’s underlying illness. This law leaves the sick and elderly vulnerable to abuse and coercion. View this film and judge for yourself.
