92 Year Old Suicide Kit Maker To Be Sentenced

Earlier this week I read this brief article from the LA Times.  The defendant is a 92 year old women who was charged in federal court for not paying taxes.  The taxes were associated with her pension as well as kits she sold on the internet, designed to assist those wishing to end their life.  As the article points out, prosecution for tax evasion skirts the growing political and ethical issues associated with assisted suicide.  Something tells me we'll be reading a lot more about this issue as the Baby Boomers continue to age.
