This article discusses a Mighigan law banning assisted suicide & the decision by a County Circuit Judge that effectively overturned the law on narrow procedural grounds. The judge ruled that when the legislation was ammended to make assisted suicide a crime, it violated a provision of the Mighigan Constitution that prohibits amending legislation to change its original purpose. The impact of this ruling on the activities of Jack Kevorkian in assisting people to kill themselves is also discussed.
