SALEM, Oregon, March 7, 2008 (LifeSiteNews.com) - A new study shows that doctors in Oregon, where physician assisted suicide (PAS) is legal, have prescribed lethal drugs to patients not actually suffering severe symptoms of their diseases. Patients have been prescribed the drugs upon experiencing only fear of future suffering and loss of dignity in the dying process, research reveals.
The study says, "Some Oregon clinicians have expressed surprise at the paucity of suffering at the time of the request among these patients".
Under Oregon's Death with Dignity Act, a terminally ill patient can request that his physician give him a prescription for a lethal dose of medication for the purpose of ending his life. Smith and other opponents of euthanasia and PAS have said that such laws, despite "safeguards" in regulations, are open to abuse and result in emotionally vulnerable patients being intimidated into making the request..........
Sean Hannity tried to help Terri via his media (tv AND radio), and he will meet with John McCain in a couple of days.
It is rumored that Gov. Crist is on McCain’s short list 4 VP, so if anyone is interested in letting Sean Hannity know what Crist did NOT do for Terri, it might not be a bad idea to contact Sean.
