Yes, but with restrictions and safeguards so that unscrupulous profiteers cannot benefit from the manipulation of the depressed. It should be restricted to those with chronic pain and terminal illnesses. Safeguards might include requiring concurrence of three non-affiliated physicians before a doctor-assisted suicide could be performed.

Yes and no. Like all medicine, it will be bought by relatives who have something to gain with your death.

Don't believe me? How about doctors who prescribe nothing but what would be illegal drugs(oxycontin, Percocet, etc.) just so they can charge cash for the office visit. It happens all the time, everywhere.

They are nothing more than "legal" drug dealers. There are a lot of them.

I think the term 'Doctor-assisted suicide' used in this poll is strange. Why not simply call it euthanasia?

Yes, if life has become unbearable then we should be able to choose when we go. I watched my father die of lung cancer, I know he reached the point that he no longer wanted to go on.

Yes, in some cases. However, there should be strict requirements for it to be allowed.
