This paper discusses positive aspects of physician-assisted suicide, as well as negative views on the topic. The researcher supports both sides with various peer-reviewed journal articles. In the conclusion, the opinion of the researcher is discussed in a favor of legalizing physician-assisted suicide with restraint.

From the Paper:

"In 1997 the United States Supreme Court made a ruling that indicated that there was no constitutional right for an individual to have physician-assisted suicide (Snyder & Sulmasy, 2001). The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, however, did make a ruling that individuals have the right to choose when and how they wish to die (Snyder & Sulmasy, 2001). Because of this, competent and terminally ill individuals who wished for a lethal dose of prescription medication found that they had a right to this because it was unconstitutional to ban them for choosing this particular type of life-ending measure."
