Ms. Coleman and Ms. Tucker debated the Supreme Court case on assisted suicide. The Court was hearing oral arguments in Gonzales v. Oregon, on whether the federal government can overturn Oregon’s Death with Dignity Act, which is an assisted suicide law, that allows doctors to prescribe drugs that help terminally ill people commit suicide. Ms. Coleman filed a brief supporting the federal government’s side and opposes the legalization of assisted suicide. Ms. Tucker wrote her group’s brief in support of Oregon and has argued this case previously before the U.S. Supreme Court. The guests also responded to questions and comments from telephone callers. close
