By "dragging doctors into it", I'm not referring to having the govt. force doctors against their will.

In such contingincies as you (mimartin)mention, it would be up to the individual medical pros to decide if their participation would be ethical or not.
Just saying that since a doctor is usaully supposed to heal and not harm, it represents an ethical conundrum. If a medical pro is willing to "assist" (like w/doctors who perform abortions) and sees no ethical problem for themself.....then as long as suicide is not illegal in and of itself, so be it.
