HARRISBURG, Pa. -- A bill aimed to help prevent suicide will be unveiled at the state house on Thursday. The new piece of legislation would penalize those who encourage or aide suicide, and it's named after a York County woman who died earlier this year.
State Representative, Dawn Keefer is the one behind the legislation titled Shawn's Law, named after Shawn Shatto.
Shatto committed suicide in her parents Newberry Township home, after following step by step instructions she got from an online forum.
Her mom, Jacqueline Bieber says people on the site were telling her daughter what drugs to mix to kill herself and were wishing her 'good luck and 'safe travels' -- she says no one gave her the option for help.
