A Matter Of Opinion

Initiative 1000: Vote no

On Sunday, our editorial endorsements began.

We came out against Initiative 1000, the proposed Death with Dignity Act modeled after Oregon’s decade-old law. Read it here.

Our three main reasons:

It places doctors – and the state – in the position of hastening death.

No urgent need exists for state intervention.

The elderly and sick could feel pressure to end their lives to save medical expenses.

We’ve had our say. Now, it’s your turn. Will you be voting for or against Initiative 1000? Blog lines are open.
