Washington and Oregon are conducting experiments in an effort to find a lethal cocktail of drugs that is inexpensive yet effective enough to kill a patient who qualifies for assisted suicide.

"What's important about this issue is twofold," begins Alex Schadenberg of the Euthanasia Prevention Coalition. "One, of course, is it's a lie to say that this is a safe, easy death. In fact, it's not. Assisted suicide is often horrific, quite often painful, and usually it takes a long time."

Secondly, medical personnel have been doing the experiments on other human beings.

Schadenberg, Alex (EPC)"So these are what you call human experiments. I think this is possibly unethical, and if the federal government, the Controlled Substances Act people realized what was going on, they would probably have to shut it down, because you can't be doing human experiments on someone and having failures like this."

The first two sets of drug combinations have failed, with victims experiencing burning throats and painful deaths, or it takes a lengthy periods of time for the cocktail to do its job. Still, a third lethal cocktail has been developed, and medical personnel are beginning to experiment with it on human beings.
