It’s worse than we thought, advocate. At first, they were trying to repeal the residency requirement of the so-called “Death with Dignity” Act. Now nearly every other supposed safeguard is on the chopping block.
Supporters of euthanasia in the Oregon Senate introduced SB 891, which will
- Reduce the 15-day waiting period to just 48 hours,
- require a medical “evaluation” instead of a full examination,
- allow physician’s assistants and nurse practitioners to make a determination of eligibility,
- and potentially more.
In addition to removing the residency requirement, these changes will make it even easier to move people through the physician-assisted suicide assembly line.
