Crosscut, January 10, 2008

Booth Gardner, a Democrat who's battling Parkinson's disease, has filed paperwork for a "Death With Dignity" initiative. Gardner says the initiative largely mimics Oregon's Death With Dignity Act, which was passed by Oregon voters in 1994 and took effect in 1997 after a protracted court battle.
