Psychiatrist to Open Assisted Suicide Clinic in Oregon

Just great.  In Oregon, an assisted suicide clinic is going to be established. From the story:

Portland psychiatrist Dr. Stuart Weisberg plans to open a house in the Sellwood neighborhood where the terminally ill can kill themselves under Oregon’s Death with Dignity Law. Weisberg told KGW-TV he felt compelled to act after watching a TV interview with Dr. Jack Kevorkian, who pioneered assisted suicide. Under Oregon law, a terminally ill state resident with only six months to live may receive a lethal dose of drugs from a pharmacy if two doctors agree.

Hey Doc, Kevorkian supports human vivisection, what he calls “obitiatry.”  Do you want to open an obitiatry clinic too?

Imagine a psychiatrist pushing suicide!  This should be considered a breach of professional ethics because it puts the authority of the mental health professions in favor of self destruction.  Here’s a novel idea:  How about a clinic to help people not want to commit assisted suicide? Nah.  No news in that.
