  • There Is Nothing Dignified About Assisted Suicide

    To the Editor:

    What a disappointment to read The Bee’s editorial “Death and Dignity,” [3/27/15]. There is nothing dignified about aiding someone’s suicide.  The language of this can be sugar coated with language that makes it more palatable to the public, but let’s say what it is, aiding someone’s suicide.

  • Choose Life Over Death

    To the Editor:

    A couple of questions we should consider about assisted suicide:

    Suicide:  Let’s call the law what it is – assisted suicide.  A good rule of thumb - if the name of a law has to conceal its real purpose – beware!  So how do we explain to teenagers that suicide is bad when it suddenly is ok for “dignity’s” sake?  Will this increase or decrease teenage suicides?

  • Don’t Glorify Physician-Assisted Suicide

    To the Editor:

    I totally disagree with the editorial last week [Editorial Ink Drops, “Death and Dignity,” 3/27/15] glorifying physician assisted suicide.

    The American Medical Association (AMA) code of ethics rejects physician-assisted suicide. The AMA states: “Physician-assisted suicide is fundamentally incompatible with the physician’s role as healer.”
