Oregon law

Data from the Oregon Health Department from 2004 indicate that another 35 people used the law bringing the total to 207 in 7 years, out of 210,000 deaths in the same period; 1/8 of 1% of all Oregonians actually died under the Death with Dignity Act.

Recently one man who apparently ingested 9g of Seconal woke up after three days. Though incidents like that have been reported in the Netherlands, no incident of unsuccessful use of the medication had previously been reported from Oregon.
