Subject: Position Statement No. 20
To the Board of Medical Examiners:
I am an attorney in Bellevue, Washington.
My law practice emphasizes elder law and probate matters. I am writing to urge you to VACATE Position Statement No. 20.
Instances of elder abuse have risen significantly in recent years. Assisted suicide provides an easy cover for an abuser who coerces a vulnerable adult into “signing up” rather than “burdening” the expectant heir. Warning signs of financial abuse often go unrecognized by physicians and others.
You are undoubtedly aware that assisted suicide is unfortunately legal in Washington. I support the position of Montanans Against Assisted Suicide. Please do not go down Washington’s path.
Do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions. Thank you.
