  1. What makes this controversy even more cntinernatsog is the fact that in Oregon, aid-in-dying accounts for .02% of all deaths. That 2 hundreds of one percent! In a state where the option is legal and has been for many years and most people support it, still only a tiny percentage make the choice. So why does anyone seek to prevent those few people from making such a choice if that is what they want and no one else is harmed? It’s clear that no one is being coerced, no one is being made to feel that they should die sooner than they wish, and no one is trying to expand the pool of the eligible to include people who are not imminently terminal. It’s also clear that the institutions that object do so on strictly religious grounds. In a country where we cherish religious freedom, I hope people can see this controversy for what it is a small minority seeking to impose their strictly religious beliefs on the rest of us who do not share those beliefs.
