Do you believe that a person that helps another person to commit suicide is a criminal? Do you?
The term Euthanasia means the killing of a terminal ill person by a physician to end his or her suffering or any action taken by a physician to provide death to a patient.
Many people argue that the decision to kill oneself is a private choice which society has no right to be concerned about.

patients have made "rational" choices for suicide, are not these physicians assisting them in ethically questionable acts? Don't physicians who assist suicide help to create an atmosphere of distrust between physicians and patients? For instances, if the physician cannot cure you, will he care for you or will he kill you? It is reasonable to conclude that physicians who are involved in assisting suicide are doing a disservice both to their patients and their profession.
