Oregon-modeled proposal in Scottish Parliament

Taken from the World Right-to-Die Newsletter issue no. 46, Januray 2005.

A proposal modeled after the Oregon Death with Dignity Act has been introduced in Scotland by the youngest member of its Parliament, 30-year-old Jeremy Purvis. Friends at the End (FATE) is supporting this model because the patient is in complete control and a physician is only the “instrument” who writes the prescription. Disability groups who fear that physicians would give “euthanasia injections” would be less threatened.
