I'm not apposed to ending a life early in certain situations. Easing pain is definitely one of those situations. Things will start getting blurred when dementia and als patients come into the mix.

This is an easy one. It will never be allowed because governments need slaves. Can't just have the slaves offing themselves left and right, who would pay taxes then? Simple really.

n the context of changing positive law, however, it is important to understand the considerable financial, scientific and medical interests there are in controlling death. These interests need not be illicit in themselves. The interests of hospital and state efficiency, freedom from unnecessary compensation claims, scientific research and increased supplies of organs for transplant are not in themselves wrongful. When understood in the context of law that invites bureaucratised homicide and serious mutilation of the non-consenting or ill-informed vulnerable, these interests introduce new extrinsic concerns."

Suppose this one says "Medicare and Medicaid dollars can only be paid to a hospital with a full-service staff. A full-service staff means that every member of the hospital staff is willing to and prepared to assist in physician assisted suicides."
i guess in that very unlikely situation if a doctor does not agree with assisted suicides then they need to seek employment at another hospital
You might consider it too. "Thou shall not kill."
