This is not true. Washington State passed a law almost identical to Oregon’s Death with Dignity Act in 2008 and enacted it in 2009. Also, a lower court judge ruled in 2008 that the citizens of the state of Montana have the right to end their life using medicine prescribed by a physician.It should also be noted that the use of the word “suicide” is hurtful to those who use the law and is in fact not used when referring to the process.George EighmeyExecutive DirectorCompassion & Choices of Oregon
