Do you think consensual crimes should be made legal?

Oct 12th, 2015

Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question:

Physician assisted suicide (PAS) [1] and Euthanasia are controversial topics that can be considered consensual crimes in several nations, and in most states of the US. There are a few nations where physician  assisted suicide is legal such as: Switzerland and the Netherlands. In the United States, physician assisted suicide is available in a few states predominantly to the terminally ill. Physician assisted suicide can be considered a consensual crime in most other US states. Since it goes against the Hippocratic Physician's oath, and it is ethically questionable with respect to the objectives of the places where it may be provided. Some of the states where Physician assisted suicide is available are: Oregon, California, Washington and Vermont, usually under some "Death with Dignity" acts.

I believe that Physician assisted suicide should be made legal to end the lives of those seriously ill and in pain, and further information should be available about this potential choice.
