Peter Goodwin: The dying doctor's last interview
Dr. Peter Goodwin, a family physician and right-to-die activist, took his own life on March 11, 2012, at age 83. He did it legally, with the blessing of his family and doctors, under the Oregon law allowing physician-assisted suicide—the first such law in the country—that Goodwin was instrumental in creating. He did not want to die, but death was coming anyway, and he did not want to wait.
