Yesterday, Washington state had its first death under our new death with dignity law. It was a 66-year-old woman with stage four pancreatic cancer.

Here is an article about the case from The Seattle Times.

I'm happy for Linda Fleming's ability to control her final days, and proud of the State of Washington for making it possible. We are wayyy past due for death with dignity laws across the U.S.

Hear, hear.

Let's hope Washington was the beginning of a trend.
