Discussion at WSU challenges need for legalizing physician-assisted suicide

In Washington State, a campaign is underway to legalize assisted suicide -- Initiative-1000 is led by Booth Gardner, the former Governor of Washington State who has Parkinson’s disease.

Chris Wesen - a 19-year-old recently attended a presentation titled “Euthanasia: A Disability Perspective,” sponsored by the WSU Disability Awareness Association.

Wesen came to the presentation supporting assisted suicide but left the presentation opposed.

People in Washington State need to listen to those who speak for the disability rights movement -- those who would be directly affected by legalized assisted suicide.
