The one point about this is that assisted suicide is just one step to non-voluntary suicide, which was pioneered in the 1940s by the Nazi party in a

[Howard Dean]: I think states have to make up their own mind. It's a very difficult moral problem,. I as a physician would not be comfortable
administering lethal drugs, but I think this a very private, personal decision and I think individual physicians and patients have the right to make
that private decision. I am very amused by the Right Wing--including the president and administration--who talk about liberty but then decide they're
going to scrutinize everyone's behavior and tell them what they can and cannot do. There can't be a much more personal decision an individual makes
than how to die and I think that is a personal decision left to individuals, their physicians and families.
