^^^Ironic truth in that. We can't punish the one who successfully pulled it off.
There doesn't need to be any "prescribed" death, though. Considering that the ill and suffering are already thinking it and perhaps considering it.
Allowing it is one thing which frankly I have a hard time arguing against having had suffering/ill relatives and watching them like this.
Prescribing it, to me however, just simply seems like a way of telling the patient: nobody cares if you're dead or alive so go off yourself. That's where I draw the line.
Telling the doctor from above in government authority to prescribe it where other viable alternatives with a good level of success might exist is just not right. However, making it available as a last resort option on the table so the patients can decide for themselves is acceptable, is better.
I'll advocate freedom of choice.
