A “Right to Die” bill in the Maryland legislature has been shelved for more study.

The legislation that would allow certain terminally ill patients the right to end their lives with prescription drugs is expected to be examined this summer.

The Salisbury Daily Times reports that the measure is sponsored by Delegate Shane Pendergrass who said she was not surprised by the resistance to the measure given the emotional testimony in Annapolis.

There are only five states that have right to die laws.
