Diane Coleman, JD, Founder and President of Not Dead Yet, in an article, "Assisted Suicide and Disability," available at (accessed Aug. 13, 2014), stated:

“Assisted suicide has been marketed to the American public as a step toward increasing individual freedom, but choice is an empty slogan in a world full of pressures on people with chronic illnesses and disabilities. Now is not the time to establish a public policy securing the profits of a health care system that abandons those most in need and would bury the evidence of their crime.”
