I am a professor emeritus of family medicine at Oregon Health & Science University in Portland, Ore. I have lived and practiced medicine in Oregon for almost 37 years.
There has been a profound shift in attitude in my state since the voters of Oregon narrowly embraced assisted suicide 20 years ago. This shift has been detrimental to our patients, degraded the quality of medical care and compromised the integrity of my profession.
