    The Oregonian:

An Empirical Analysis of the Results of the Legalization of Euthanasia and Physician-Assisted Suicide in the Netherlands and Oregon

    Oregon, the only U.S. state with legalized physician-assisted suicide, and the Netherlands, the only country in Europe with legalized euthanasia and physician-assisted suicide, have kept extensive records of the use of end-of-life treatments. These records show that physicians in Oregon and the Netherlands generally follow the law, that legalization shapes physicians’ behavior, and that legalization may improve end-of-life care.
