Oregon Death with Dignity Act – 20th Anniversary

Last week marked the 20th anniversary of the Oregon Death with Dignity Act.  


Ballot initiative 16 was approved in the November 8, 1994 general election. 627,980 votes (51.3%) were cast in favor, 596,018 votes (48.7%) against.  But an injunction delayed implementation of the Act until October 27, 1997.
