Should States Be Able to Starve The ‘Mentally Incompetent?’ A Disturbing Expansion To Oregon’s Assisted Suicide

(National Review) Oregon, which in 1997 became the first state in the U.S. to legalize assisted suicide, is considering tweaking the laws surrounding advance directives, the legal documents by means of which a person can dictate ahead of time his desires for end-of-life care. The innocuous-seeming changes that Senate Bill 494 proposes would permit the state to starve certain patients to death. Dr. William Toffler, MD, National Director of Physicians for Compassionate Care, Professor and Physician of Family Medicine at Oregon Health and Science University joined Lars to discuss this disturbing bill proposal.
