Annotation 1: SIRS-Assisted Suicide Ticks Upward in Oregon

This article discussed the law of assisted suicide (physician-assisted) in the state of Oregon, the only state to have assisted suicide legalized. Since 2003, even more people are deciding to kill themselves. There was a 10% from 2002 to 2003. There are rules of the law though. One law is that the patient must be terminally ill and with an estimation of six months to live. Some people feel physician assisted suicide is a violation of doctors' practices with using a lethal injection.
