Letter: A veto of fear, ignorance
Re “Live Free or Die state can’t discuss end-of-life issues (Monitor Forum, July 25):
Maybe Gov. Maggie Hassan vetoed House Bill 403 because she, like so many others, is subject to the fear, ignorance and misinformation associated with end-of-life issues, especially the “Death with Dignity” law that has been adopted by several states. Unfortunately, vetoing HB 403 removes any chance of clarifying and understanding the controversy surrounding end-of-life issues. The residents of New Hampshire can only hope that their elected representatives will persevere in their efforts to promote, support and investigate all aspects concerning that which we share in common: the fact that we are mortal.
