Assisted Suicide and Euthanasia

“The bill is sold as ‘aid in dying,’ which is a traditional euphemism for assisted suicide and euthanasia,” said Dore. “The term is also misleading in the context of the bill, which is not limited to dying people.”

Today at Noon: Margaret Dore and David Leven Debate Assisted Suicide/Euthanasia


Dore: “The New York bill is sold as assuring patient choice and control. The bill is instead stacked against the patient and a recipe for elder abuse.”

Hempstead, NY – Attorney Margaret Dore, president of Choice is an Illusion, which has fought assisted suicide/euthanasia legalization efforts in many states and now New York, made the following statement in connection with “Euthanasia or Aid in Dying? You Decide,” a debate today at noon,  Hofstra University Club, 225 Hofstra Boulevard, Hempstead, NY 11550.

“The debate will address a bill pending before the New York State Legislature, which seeks to legalize ‘Aid in Dying,’ a traditional euphemism for assisted suicide and euthanasia," said Dore. "The term implies that ‘eligible’ persons are near death, but such persons may have years,even decades, to live.” (Bill A. 2383/S. 3151)
