Petition against aid in dying presented to Gov. Ige

News

The governor is set to sign a bill legalizing medical aid in dying. Not everyone is happy about it. 

Over 18,000 people signed a petition to try to deter him from signing the bill, which he said he would do Thursday.

“Our concern has been with the wider community,” said Eva Andrade of the Hawaii Family Forum.  “Whether it’s elderly kupuna or youth. Suicide is not what the people of Hawaii really want.”

Gov. Ige thanked everyone for coming to share their feelings on the issue. 

He’s still slated to sign the bill Thursday morning.
