Annotation 6: ProQuest-Los Angeles Times

Author: Geoffrey Nunberg

This article discusses the wording of the use of physician-assisted suicide. In a survey, 75% of adults supported "ending the lives" of the terminally-ill. When worded differently, only 58% agreed to the "physician-assisted suicide." So, people wonder if the wording of it changes the way people feel about the whole subject. Some sources even considered changing titles to give it a better meaning and make it sound not so harsh.
