EUGENE, Oregon, Sept 24 (LSN) – On Tuesday, U.S. District Judge Michael Hogan rejected a challenge to an Oregon law permitting assisted suicide. The law’s opponents argued that the legislation placed a stigma on the disabled making them seem to be of less worth than others.  Hogan, who brought a halt to the pro-assisted suicide law once before, denied the challenge saying that the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals had decided that an injury had to occur before the law could be challenged.
