Just great. In Oregon, an assisted suicide clinic is going to be established. From the story:
Portland psychiatrist Dr. Stuart Weisberg plans to open a house in the Sellwood neighborhood where the terminally ill can kill themselves under Oregon’s Death with Dignity Law. Weisberg told KGW-TV he felt compelled to act after watching a TV interview with Dr. Jack Kevorkian, who pioneered assisted suicide. Under Oregon law, a terminally ill state resident with only six months to live may receive a lethal dose of drugs from a pharmacy if two doctors agree.
Hey Doc, Kevorkian supports human vivisection, what he calls “obitiatry.” Do you want to open an obitiatry clinic too?
Imagine a psychiatrist pushing suicide! This should be considered a breach of professional ethics because it puts the authority of the mental health professions in favor of self destruction. Here’s a novel idea: How about a clinic to help people not want to commit assisted suicide? Nah. No news in that.
