Seattle Times letters to the editor

March 6, 2009 at 4:59 PM

Death with Dignity Act

The law is the law

After reading Seattle resident Tim Carney’s letter to the editor, “What medicine has become: doctors destroying human life” [Northwest Voices, March 4], I want to respond.

Mr. Carney, the law is the law.

Washington state voters made their decision in a fair election. They believe one way and you believe another. I have a right to my belief as you have a right to yours.

If you are against abortion, don’t have one. If you are against death with dignity, spend your last days the way you want to.

Like you, I have a choice to do what I believe.

— Sally Robbins, Port Townsend
