Santa Fe, NM- The Pro-Death Assisted suicide bill, HB 90 ELIZABETH WHITEFIELD END OF LIFE OPTIONS died on the House floor when the bill sponsor, Rep. Deborah Armstrong, D-Albuquerque withdrew her bill when she realized that she did not have enough votes to pass it.
According to the Santa Fe New Mexican,
"Though the bill [HB 90], known as the Elizabeth Whitefield End of Life Options Act, made it through two House committees this year, it was quietly tabled in the House of Representatives in late February.
Tara Shaver, spokeswoman for Abortion Free New Mexico issued the following statement,
"It's good to know that the New Mexico House did not have enough votes to even consider HB 90 and it's a testimony that New Mexican Democrat legislators aren't fully embracing a culture of Death with regard to assisted suicide.
