The Measure Applies to People With Years or Decades to Live

William Toffler MD
By Margaret Dore, Esq.

The measure applies to people with a “terminal disease,” meaning those predicted to have less than six months to live. Such persons may, in fact, have decades to live. This is true for the following reasons:

A. If South Dakota Follows Oregon's Interpretation of "Terminal Disease," the Measure Will Apply to Young Adults with Insulin Dependent Diabetes

The measure states:
“Terminal disease,” [means] an incurable and irreversible disease that has been medically confirmed and will, within reasonable medical judgment, produce death within six months.[1]
