The attempt by a few right-wingers to make everybody who uses the Oregon Death With Dignity Act for physician-assisted suicide take a mental health check first, has collapsed.
The Eugene Register-Guard newspaper reports 7 April 2011, when surveying the present legislature’s work:
“Some divisive bills don’t even make it to the public hearing stage.
House Bill 2016, which would modify Oregon’s Death With Dignity law to
require patients seeking life-ending medication to undergo counseling,
has seen no activity –no hearing or work session — since it was
referred to the House Health Care Committee in late March.”
Thus this Bill expires at the end of this week.
