Assisted Suicide Law Goes Into Effect in Austria

Austrians are now legally allowed to seek assisted suicide after a new law went into effect on Saturday. The practice will still be very restrictive, with a patient having to be either terminally ill or have a permanent, chronic condition to have access to the measure. They will also have to consult with two doctors about their case. Depending on their condition, patients must wait between two and 12 weeks to reflect on their decision before they are allowed to access lethal drugs from a pharmacy. Under the new law, which was passed in December, it will still be illegal for a person to actively assist in someone else’s suicide, and minors and people suffering from mental health issues will not have access to this option. Austria is now among several European countries that have legalized forms of assisted dying, including Spain, France, and Switzerland. Canada also expanded its law on the practice under certain circumstances, and in the U.S., several states have death with dignity statutes that permit doctor-assisted deaths for patients who are terminally ill.

Massachusetts City Appoints Nation’s First Cambodian American Mayor

The city of Lowell in Massachusetts has appointed the United States’ first Cambodian American mayor. In a unanimous decision Monday, Sokhary Chau—who previously served as a city councilor—was appointed mayor, also becoming the city’s first Asian American leader. Chau came to America as a refugee in the 1970s after surviving the oppressive rule of Cambodia’s Communist Khmer Rouge. During his swearing-in speech Monday, he told the crowd how his father, a Cambodian army captain, was executed by the Khmer Rouge and how his mother fought to keep her children alive in destitute conditions, from living in jungles to avoiding landmines and starvation. “I was a refugee, now I’m mayor of a major city in Massachusetts,” Chau said. “As a proud Cambodian American, I am standing on the shoulders of many immigrants who came before me…We can no longer be just victims. It is our time now to be leaders and to succeed.”

Snowstorm Traps Hundreds in Their Cars All Night on Interstate 95

Hundreds of drivers—including Sen. Tim Kaine (D-VA)—dealt with the miserable experience of sleeping in their cars overnight after accidents caused by a snowstorm left them stranded. A 50-mile stretch of Interstate 95 in Virginia became impassable following a crash involving six tractor-trailers. Some people have been trapped for as long as 20 hours, and they told NBC Washington that they’re fast running out of food for them, their kids, and pets. NBC News correspondent Josh Lederman was one the unlucky ones and he described his experience as “pretty insane and fairly dystopian.” He added: “I can see thousands of cars from where I am on the highway. [Drivers] have been in their cars overnight without food, without water. It’s been 26 degrees outside, and nobody knows how long we’re going to be here or how we’re going to get out.” Sen. Kaine tweeted early Tuesday that he had been stuck in his car for around 19 hours.
