A 76-year-old woman from Connecticut, Lynda Bluestein, is Vermont’s first nonresident to undergo medically assisted suicide.

Bluestein, diagnosed with ovarian cancer, expressed frustration with Connecticut’s laws, which do not allow medically assisted suicide.

In Vermont, where it has been legal since 2013, over 200 individuals have utilized this option, mainly for terminal illnesses like cancer. (Trending: Fauci’s Ex-Boss Admits The Truth About COVID)

Bluestein said, “I’d like to be remembered as someone who never thought that second best was even in the realm of possibility; who always believed that you can make everything better.”

“Our state has failed my family and many others. Who can take a calendar and say that’s the day I’m going to die?” she continued.

“I was astonished on how cruel that felt,” added Bluestein.

Only Vermont and Oregon permit nonresidents to access medically assisted suicide.

Bluestein had sued Vermont over its restriction to residents only, and the state legislature later removed that requirement.

She and advocacy groups have pushed for legalization in Connecticut, but legislation has not advanced.

Bluestein’s case highlights the ongoing debate and legal developments surrounding medically assisted suicide.

Bluestein said, “When I, like so many before me, have just wanted ‘to wake up dead,’ I want it to be at home and at peace.”
