The New Jersey State Assembly has voted in favor of physician-assisted suicide.
The measure passed by a vote of 7-2 with two abstentions.
The Death with Dignity Act would allow terminally ill patients to be prescribed medication that would end their lives.
Under the measure, the lethal medication would only be made available to patients who are told by two doctors that they have six months or less to live.
