Montana v. Baxter was argued in front of the Montana Supreme Court this week as a appeal to a lower court ruling that the state constitution does not necessarily prohibit someone from medically hastening their expected death. With all the concern about hastened death in the news, I figure all Pallimed readers should be up to date. I won't go into too any more detail on this one other than to say Thaddeus Pope at Medical Futility and Jessica Knapp at The Good Death can tell you all you need to know historically and currently. No decisions have been made at this point.
