Stacey Richter holds a sign outside a federal courthouse in Portland, Ore., as a hearing begins to decide the fate of Oregon's physician-assisted suicide law. Voters approved the aid-in-dying proposal in 1994 and it then survived a repeal effort. The law that took effect Oct. 27, 1997 made Oregon the first state to make it legal for a doctor to prescribe a life-ending drug to a terminally ill patient of sound mind who makes the request.
