Right to die bill delayed for another year by legislative committee

Right to die bill delayed for another year by legislative committee

(KUTV) Carrie Snyder has aggressive brain cancer and not long to live. She says she has maybe two or three months.

She asked a legislative committee today for a bill that would let her choose her time and manner of death.

A legislative committee heard testimony on an options-at-death bill Thursday.

Snyder wants to avoid a a lingering, doped-up death.

"I want to be lucid. I want to be competent," she said.

Conservative groups say this is the wrong way to help dying people. The committee voted to study the bill for another year, as it did last year.

For Snyder to have the death she wants, it is too late.
