In Washington State Suicide Begins

According to the Seattle Times Washington State health officials have reported two prescriptions have been filled for life-ending drugs under the new suicide law.

Health Department spokesman Tim Church said Thursday he could not provide any details about the people considering suicide, only that the department has received two forms from pharmacists saying they have dispensed the drugs.

The department has not received any forms certifying that a person has committed suicide under the state law that took effect in early March.

People who fill prescriptions for life-ending medication have as long as they want to take the medication or to change their minds and never take it.
