Statement and Response to Public Attacks by Compassion and Choices

February 21, 2015

Many people disagree with my strong opposition to legalizing physician-assisted suicide. So be it. Sometimes people with good intentions disagree.

I regret that Compassion and Choices often criticizes me for saying things that I never said and would never say. The group’s character attacks aimed at me and mischaracterizations of my beliefs are not helpful.

I encourage you to listen to the interviews or read the transcripts before forming your own opinions about my statements.

Thank you.
Ira Byock, MD
