Right-To-Die Billboard Causes Uproar In N.J.
Final Exit Network Says It Provides Guidance To Adults With Painful Illnesses, But Many Residents Upset With Ad
HILLSIDE, N.J. (CBS)
This billboard on Route 22 in Hillside, N.J., has many people up in arms.
The message on a billboard in New Jersey is stirring up a lot of controversy.
It centers on whether a person suffering from a painful disease has the right to take his or her own life.
The billboard looms over a busy section of Route 22 in Hillside, facing the eastbound lanes. Some drivers said they are confused by the message.
The NJ Libertarian Party platform calls for "the repeal of all laws interfering with the right to commit suicide as infringement of the ultimate right of an individual to his or her own life." We congratulate the Final Exit Network on their billboard.
