Montana: Land of dignity and Freedom!

Montana may become the first U.S. state to rule that assisted suicide is a right guaranteed by the state's constitution.

"Lawyers on both sides [of the question of assisted suicide] say the Montana Supreme Court has a tradition of interpreting the State Constitution with [the inviolability of human dignity] in mind, with privacy rights and personal liberty often outweighing other concerns. The court ruled in 1997, for example, that Montana’s anti-sodomy laws were unconstitutional invasions of privacy." (NYT)
