The Roman Catholic Church led the fight against doctor-assisted suicide in 1994--and learned a tough political lesson. Priests preached from the pulpit, Catholic leaders sent impassioned letters to church members, and Catholic groups gave hundreds of thousands of dollars to the campaign, including $276,000 from one weekend collection. The landmark ballot question, called Measure 16, passed anyway, and the state's largest religious denomination lost.
