08 Feb Assisted suicide question requires some clarification
Six false ideas about assisted suicide
False idea No. 1. An assisted suicide law protects important patient rights.
This law offers no new protection. Patients control their own lives. They already have the right to end their own lives in every state. This law offers no new “right”, but it does protect doctors involved in patient death by legalizing lethal medication, concealing the fact of suicide, and blocking investigation.
