Assisted suicides increase again in Oregon: patients being pressured to commit suicide | LifeSiteNews.com. 1/30/2013.

Extensive Report


The Oregon assisted suicide law does not prevent elder abuse.
Margaret Dore, the President of Choice is an Illusion and a lawyer from Seattle noted that the Oregon assisted suicide statistics are consistent with elder abuse.
Dore stated in her article that:

Oregon’s assisted suicide law, itself, allows the lethal dose to be administered without oversight. This creates the opportunity for an heir, or someone else who will benefit from the patient’s death, to administer the lethal dose to the patient without the patient’s consent. Even if he struggled, who would know?
