Sending yourself to hell… ever thought of it that way?

Oregon sets record for assisted suicides:

Oregon recorded more deaths by physician-assisted suicide in 2007 than in any year in the decade since the practice was legalized.

The Oregon Department of Human Services recently reported 49 people committed suicide last year using lethal doses of drugs prescribed by doctors. The previous yearly high was 46 in 2006.

Oregon, the only state to legalize assisted suicide, has recorded 341 such deaths since its Death With Dignity Act took effect in late 1997.
