In ill doctor, a surprise reflection of who picks assisted suicide
Dr. Richard Wesley has amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. He lives in Seattle, with the knowledge that an untimely death is chasing him down, but takes solace in knowing that he can decide exactly when, where and how he will die. A pulmonologist and critical care physician, Wesley voted for Washington State’s Death With Dignity Act when it was on the ballot in 2008, two years after he retired. He had no idea that his vote would soon become intensely personal.
