Support

Andrew Batavia, J.D. “Disability and Physician-Assisted Dying”. Physician-Assisted Dying: The Case for Palliative Care & Patient Choice. 2004 – “Those who oppose a right to assisted suicide predict that a substantial number of people with disabilities would be killed against their will if assisted suicide were legalized. However, there is no evidence that this has happened to people on life-support systems, who have had the right to die at least since the Cruzan decision in 1990.”[1]
