>For some, it’s all about the suicide "choice"

>After the articles that seemed to focus on end of life care, rather than “Physician Assisted Suicide,” there were a few, including this one, that were focused on the “option” to commit suicide.

Most of the relatively healthy people who say that they are in favor of legalized prescribing of lethal doses of what could otherwise be used as medicine are concerned about controlling how and when they die. They seem more afraid of losing control than of pain or even being a burden.

Unfortunately, I haven’t seen any in-depth studies of the opinions and thoughts of those who have taken advantage of Oregon’s legalized suicide. I can’t recall a report on the actual course of the acts of suicide.

Are there failures other than Mr Pruitt, whom we heard about a couple of years ago? How often do doctors interfer? How often does the patient actually self-administrate the suicide agent? How often does someone else give them the pills?
