JJ Hanson, Former President of Patients' Rights Action Fund, in a Sep. 27, 2017 article, "Assisted Suicide Laws Will Pressure Poor, Elderly, and Depressed to Die," available at, stated:

“When assisted suicide becomes accepted public policy it threatens the lives of everyone, especially the poor, elderly, mentally ill, disabled, and terminally ill. Why? Well, for starters, abuse is unavoidable and doctors are fallible. Assisted suicide policy also injects government insurers and private insurance companies with financial incentives into every single person’s end of life decisions.”
