A right-to-suicide bill is being pulled off the table in the state Legislature. Sponsors decided not to bring it up for debate on the House floor yesterday, conceding there weren't enough votes to get it passed. State Representative Lois Court slammed her fellow politicians, saying she was "profoundly disappointed." She also said they'll probably be hearing from the people they represent, because the bill has the support of over half the voters in Colorado.
