City Inside/Out: Assisted Suicide
City Inside/Out: Assisted Suicide

This week's City Inside/Out takes an in-depth look at Initiative 1000, which would allow mentally competent, terminally ill adults who have a life expectancy of 6 months or less to obtain and self-administer lethal medication. Till now, only Oregon has a law that allows assisted suicide. In 1991, a similar initiative failed in WA. Is this initiative a humane way to die with dignity, or does it discriminate against the less-fortunate and promote euthanasia? We take a look at both sides of this controversial debate and meet some individuals who have a personal stake in its outcome.
