An Oregon television station reports on a women in Eugene who got a letter from the state health plan, in which she was informed that the state wouldn’t pay for her chemotherapy but would pay for her assisted suicide. Check out the report, which is a chilling view of one possible future for American health care.

UPDATE: I’ve found out two things from the Tacoma (WA) News-Tribune since posting this item (which was, as Alan Wilkerson points out in his comment, not a new story–it was first reported in June of 2008). First, Ms. Wagner got the drug in question from the pharmaceutical company that makes it. Second, she died in October of 2008.
