STATE OF WASHINGTON ARTICLES
"In the US state of Washington, where has enacted a law like Falconer�s, over six in ten of those making use of it do so because they believe they are a �burden� on family, friends and caregivers. The law has removed the protection that vulnerable people currently have against the subtle coercion of relatives shouldering the care burden and anxiously eyeing a dwindling inheritance."
"The word 'compassion' comes from the Latin root meaning 'to suffer with.'
Assisted suicide kills a human being, but there is another victim. Our
humanity -- the capacity to suffer with the most vulnerable members of our
society -- dies as well."
