Gallup’s annual survey on Values and Beliefs, conducted May 8-11, 2006, finds that the vast majority of Americans continue to support “right-to-die” laws for terminally ill patients, whether that involves a doctor ending a patient’s life by some painless means, or a doctor assisting a terminally ill patient to commit suicide.

An analysis of Gallup data collected since 2003 shows that senior citizens, American who frequently attend religious services, those with lower levels of education, blacks, conservatives, and Republicans are most likely to object to euthanasia and doctor-assisted suicide.
