Diane Coleman
Not Dead Yet
The Resistance


Since 1983, many people with disabilities have opposed the assisted suicide and euthanasia movement. Though often described as compassionate, legalized medical killing is really about a deadly double standard for people with severe disabilities, including both conditions that are labeled terminal and those that are not.

Disability opposition to this ultimate form of discrimination has been ignored by most media and courts, but countless people with disabilities have already died before their time. For some, a disabled person’s suicidal cry for help" was ignored, misinterpreted, or even exploited by the right to die movement. For others, death came at the request of a family member or other health care surrogate. This is not compassion, it’s contempt.
