Doctor-Assisted Death Measure

October 30, 1992

Terminal patients have often asked me for help in ending their lives before agony ends their equanimity. Sadly, I had nothing to offer that wouldn't jeopardize me or others legally. Passage of Prop. 161 with its excellent safeguards will supply compassionate means.

I hope to call upon its provisions if and when I ever need it myself.
