I am relieved to see that Colorado has just passed legislation that allows terminal patients more options to extend their life on earth. I cannot imagine the heart break knowing that a medication exists that could save the life of the one you love, but they can't have it.

Here is a link to an article about the Colorado legislation from The Huffington Post:

I think the naysayers have never really needed to fight tooth and nail for their own lives. One said this jeopardizes the approval process and delays release of those experimental medications to the masses. Well, that issue, if it is real, can be fixed because the FDA can make adjustments for this. Paperwork, red tape, money and more money..............none of those concerns has a real pulse.
We want to swim, not sink. When someone you love is drowning you want to throw them a lifeline.
Thank you Governor John Hickenlooper of Colorado!
Thank you for showing true compassion!
I pray that all states pass this kind of legislation..
It gives us hope.
Peace and Blessings,
