Tadamori Ōshima (大島 理森 Ōshima Tadamori?, born September 6, 1946) is a Japanese politician of the Liberal Democratic Party, a member of the House of Representatives in the Diet (national legislature). A native of Hachinohe, Aomori and graduate of Keio University, he worked at the national newspaper Mainichi Shimbun from 1970 to 1974 and was elected to the assembly of Aomori Prefecture in 1975. He was elected to the House of Representatives for the first time in 1983 after an unsuccessful run in 1980. He is the current Speaker of the House of Representatives of Japan.
In February 2016, Satoshi Uematsu, a worker at a disability center, sent a letter to the House of Representatives asking for permission to request the families of disabled patients for involuntary euthanasia of the patients. Uematsu was involuntarily hospitalized from February to March. In July, he sent another letter to the House of Representatives declaring that he would "wipe out" 470 patients, before he committed the Sagamihara stabbings, where 19 patients died.
