Survey shows support for assisted suicide

According to a national survey of adults by ELDR magazine and ELDR.com on the issue of physician-assisted suicide, more than 80% of those responding said they believe that the choice to end one's life is a "personal decision."

Two-thirds of the adults said they want physician-assisted suicide made legal, as it is in Oregon.

The publications said its survey revealed that only half of adults over 60 years old have a living will or advance health care directive.
