Where are they when you're dying?

You can see all of the 2004 report of the Oregon Death With Dignity Act at http://egov.oregon.gov/DHS/ph/pas/docs/year7.pdf

For me, the most interesting table is table # 4, about those present at the ingestion of the lethal overdose:
  • In the 37 cases, six doctors were present
  • In the 37 cases, 25 'other providers' were present (volunteers, family?)
  • In the 37 cases, six people had nobody present.
I have always believed, and pressed for, the doctors who write the lethal prescription should be present at the rational suicide which they have set in motion.
