Annas discusses Michigan’s law against assisted suicide passed in February 1993. The law provides for fines &/or imprisonment if a person provides the physical means or participates in a physical act by which another person attempts or commits suicide. Two subsections specify the exceptions to the law. Annas also discusses the difference between Quill, another doctor who assisted a patient’s suicide, & Kevorkian; the slippery slope argument; & the challenge this law poses to Michigan physicians.
