SCRIPT
[Kareline]
On November 13 of 2014, New Jerseys
assembly approved a bill in which they
would allow physicians to give life-ending
drugs to terminally ill patients. The bill
establishes a protocol for patients who want
to end their life. This procedure has to be
certified by a second doctor and confirmed
patient has not received undue the pressure
from others.
[Talent] Sara Emilgi, an academic specialist
of the English as a Second Language at Kean
University, feels this way about the
resolution of this bill.
-

SOT (Sara Emilgi): I dont think that


prescribing life ending drugs
determinedly ill patients is correct.
People should die naturally and if
doctors dont want to give them the
medicine that is making them better,
then they could stop giving them the
medicine. They shouldnt give
medicine to purposely end someones
life.

VO [Talent] However, not everyone at Kean


feels the same way about the new bill. Maria
Soldi, a senior student at Kean, thinks that
the recent bill is a good thing.

SOT (Maria Soldi): Well, I feel like if


your days are numbers, there is
absolutely no way that you can
recuperate for whatever illness you

are going through and you seeing


various doctors and all have the same
answers and you have only a certain
amount to live, I think it should be up
to the person to take a little control of
that. If it is okay, he or she wait up
the up the pros and cons to it. If that
person were okay with it about
picking a day that they would like to
pass away. Waiting around, waiting
for the death to came to them, I think
it should be up to the patient and
more than one doctor.

Clearly, this is a controversy issue


that we will continue to hear about.
Now that the bill has passed in the
assembly, it will move on to the state
senate. Governor Christie has
indicated his opposition to the bill.
