Pro to the question "Should Euthanasia or Physician-Assisted Suicide Be Legal?"
"The Death With Dignity Act (DWDA) is an expression of Oregon's 'independent sovereign[ty],' within the ambit of the State's historic power to regulate the practice of medicine. The U.S. Attorney General's threat to deregister or prosecute Oregon physicians and pharmacists who comply with the DWDA will necessarily deprive Oregonians of the rights embodied in that Act."
Brief in support of Respondent, Gonzales v. Oregon, 2005
Experts MDs, JDs (Lawyers), PhDs and Religious Leaders with significant involvement in end-of-life issues. [Because end-of-life dilemmas require medical, ethical, legal, and in some case religious considerations, we view MDs, PhDs with a bio-ethical focus, and JDs/religious leaders with significant involvement as "experts" in the euthanasia debate.] [Note: Experts definition varies by site.]
