Supportive survey

In April 2005 Harris Poll showed that more than two-thirds of U.S. adults think that the law should allow medical euthanasia for dying patients in severe distress who ask to have their lives ended. Two-thirds of the public would like their states to allow physician-assisted suicide as it is currently allowed in Oregon. Furthermore, most people feel that if they were unconscious and unlikely to recover they should not be kept alive on a life-support system. The majorities in favor of euthanasia and physician-assisted suicide have increased over the last few years.
