Eye On Olympia

Assisted-death initiative...

Gov. Chris Gregoire was asked Tuesday whether she'd support former Gov. Booth Gardner's push for a citizen's initiative to allow doctors to help terminally-ill patients end their lives.

"I'm not prepared to answer that question today, but I do believe that it's a question that should be decided by the voters of this state," Gregoire responded.

A devout Catholic, she said the bill puts her in a tough spot.

"I have to search my soul and my Catholic faith," she said.
