Washington Act Must Be Overturned

Washington State's "Death with Dignity" Act legalized assisted suicide and euthanasia as those terms are traditionally defined. 

•  In practice, the Act applies to people with years or decades to live. See here.

•  Assisting persons can have an agenda: an adult child wanting an inheritance; other predators seeking financial gain; or a doctor wanting to hide malpractice.

•  The Act is sold as voluntary, but someone else is allowed to speak for the patient during the lethal dose request process, even a stranger.
