Death with Dignity or Assisted Suicide?
Town Square: Death with Dignity or Assisted Suicide?

Oregon is currently the only state in the nation that allows assisted suicide or patient-directed dying. Former Governor Booth Gardner has filed an initiative here in Washington which, if passed, would allow some terminally ill patients to receive medication to end their lives. What are the moral and ethical arguments on both sides of this emotionally charged issue? How are they addressed in the proposed law? Medical professionals and ethicists discuss the ramifications of the issue, and take questions from the audience. The program is moderated by Seattle University Law Professor John Mitchell. Presented by the Town Hall and CityClub, with Elliott Bay Book Company.
