Oregon physician behind suicide law dies
PORTLAND, ORE. (AP) - A Portland physician who campaigned for Oregon’s Death With Dignity Act has died using lethal chemicals obtained under the law he championed. He was 83.
A spokesman for the organization Compassion and Choices says Peter Goodwin died Sunday at his home surrounded by his family. Goodwin told the Oregonian last month ( http://bit.ly/Axamvh) he’s battled a rare brain disorder for six years.
Oregon was the first state to allow terminally ill patients to take their own lives with the help of lethal medications supplied by a doctor.
The act was the result of a long campaign by Goodwin, and he’s called it his greatest legacy.
