This article discusses the 2007 decisions of the U.S. Supreme Court in the two physician assisted suicide (PAS) cases, describes the policy debate about the permissibility of assisted suicide, and discusses experience under the Oregon statute that legalizes PAS in certain cases. The article also summarizes the moral arguments for and against PAS and euthanasia, and discusses the prospects for further legislation.
