From the Paper:

"The issue of euthanasia will continue to rage on in legal, medical, and moral circles, because ultimately it always asks what is the purpose of life, an essentially unanswerable query. Because of the unanswerable nature of this question, one is forced to allow it in medically dire cases, or when the will of those whose lives have been compromised by brain injury, to prevent the living of a life in pain, or against a terminal individual's expressed will. But in more murky cases, the state must intervene to preserve life, such as when a depressed individual wishes to commit suicide."
