In Oregon, if you are on the state medical program, and the state?
considers you "terminal" you are offed physician assisted suicide instead of treatment. If the state deems you have less that a certain five-year survival rate, they do indeed offer suicide. That could happen with the new health care plan. To those who said I was wrong, look it up please. And to those who said their relatives survived hospice care, think again. Maybe to prevent costly hospice care, physician assisted suicide my be considered and your relative would have died.

I don't know what the state of Oregon law allows. I do know that Dr. Jack Kevorkian is doing prison time for Dr assisted suicides in Michigan. I would guess that different states have differing laws. Like many other state laws.

You seem to be ignoring the fact that there are 49 other states with more pressing issues to be included in the health-care reform bill. None of which include euthanasia. Oregon is not at the top of the list when it comes to political sway, so why are you afraid of Oregon's health policies? Do you live in Oregon... More
