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

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:
