Missouri policymakers discuss what this state’s policies should be in dealing with end of life issues. As the U.S. Supreme Court considers Oregon’s doctor-assisted suicide law, a summit considering end-of-life issues was held in Jefferson City. Attorney General Jay Nixon was one of those discussing how a person’s last days should be handled. When asked about Oregon’s law, Nixon indicated he would not oppose it. Lieutenant Governor Peter Kinder also attended the summit. While agreeing there should be no government interference in personal decisions, he stopped short of endorsing Oregon’s doctor-assisted suicides. Both Kinder and Nixon do agree families need to make plans well ahead of time when it comes to medical directives.
