Assisted Suicide

| | Comments (0)
If it were not possible to die by our own hand -- think Groundhog Day -- would doctor-assisted suicide be legal today?

That is, is one of the primary reasons we disallow it that we think it is unnecessary? We don't like the government doling out this authority to kill, and it is not -- in almost all cases -- necessary, because people can find ways to kill themselves if they wish (they simply prefer not to, for various reasons). But if it were "necessary," would we allow it?
