right to die
Grace Sung Eun Lee died Sunday at her parents’ home. She was 28.
Under the measure, the lethal medication would only be made available to patients who are told by a doctor that they have six months or less to live.
Attorneys for 28-year-old Grace Sung Eun Lee and her parents told a state Supreme Court judge that the woman had agreed to designate her father as her health proxy should she become incapacitated and unable to make health decisions for herself.
There had been a legal battle about her decision to die after her devoutly religious parents appealed her request to be taken off life support.
