Oregon Becomes America’s First ‘Death Tourism’ State

From a Biblical worldview, there are a few main indicators to look for when determining the level of moral decline in a culture.

One of them is the value of life, from conception to natural death. Germany, Belgium, the Netherlands, and Canada have gone to the dark side by promoting “assisted suicide” and an increasing number of states in the US are joining in.

Assisted suicide activists have always promised that strict guidelines protect against abuse in Euthanasia but in the end, physicians tend to make the final decisions for their patients who are desperately looking for help and not always thinking clearly.

When Measure 16 passed in Oregon, assisted suicide was limited to state residents. The requirement was recently deemed inoperative by the state’s ever-flaccid suicide regulators after a lawsuit was settled and is expected to soon be repealed.

That threatens to open a floodgate and transform Oregon into the U.S. equivalent of Switzerland, where suicide clinics flourish.

People from out of state who have been diagnosed with a terminal illness — something very loosely defined — are traveling to Oregon to find a death doctor willing to help make themselves dead in just over two weeks.

From the Daily Mail story:

“Oregon has become America’s first ‘death tourism’ destination, where terminally ill people from Texas and other states that have outlawed assisted suicide have started traveling to get their hands on a deadly cocktail of drugs to end their lives,” DailyMail.com can reveal.

“In the liberal bastion Portland, at least one clinic has started receiving out-of-staters who have less than six months to live and meet the other strict requirements of the state’s Death with Dignity (DWD) law.”

“Dr. Nicholas Gideonse, the director of End of Life Choices Oregon, recently told a panel that he was advising terminally ill non-residents on traveling to Oregon to end their lives, despite a legal gray area.”

Remember, suicidal people who qualify for assisted suicide are not usually offered prevention, meaning some suicidal people receive efforts to save their lives while others are abandoned to facilitation.

Activists also promised that assisted suicide would only occur in the context of a close doctor/patient relationship.

But Oregon permits doctor shopping. If one doctor says no, suicidal patients can merely ask an advocacy group to recommend an ideologically predisposed doctor willing to prescribe death. And suicide prescribers don’t even need to practice in the specialty that treats the patient’s underlying medical condition.
