Lewis Publishes on Physician-Assisted Suicide in the Oregon Law Review

Browne Lewis, C|M|LAW’s Leon and Gloria Plevin Professor of Law, and Director of C|M|LAW’s Center for Health Law and Policy, has published A Graceful Exit: Redefining Terminal to Expand the Availability of Physician Assisted Suicide, in the Oregon Law Review.  The article appears at 91 Oregon L. Rev. 457 (2012).  In her article, Lewis looks at the limited number of states that have enacted statutes that permit terminally ill persons to choose the time and manner of their death, and suggests ways the statutes could be improved to address critics’ concerns.  It also recommends ways to expand the availability of physician-facilitated suicide in those states so that more people can exit gracefully.
