    Oregon, Washington, and Montana do have some right-to-die legislation, for what it's worth.

    What would be the point of living if you can't hear or see? The only thing you could essentially do is jack off all day. But I mean, who is going to volunteer to clean that up all the time.

    It should definitely be legal for a doctor to do it, but only under certain circumstances. You can't just have a bunch of depressed people booking appointments to die.

    If there's explicit and informed consent is there harm?

    If you are able bodied, yes. If you are paralyzed or in a condition where you cannot talk, it's not so simple.

    The real issue is the legality of suicide can cause financial, insurance, and legal harm to your estate/relatives. It's also an inconvenience to let someone find your rotting corpse 4-days after an OD on pills. Let's just keep it safe and legal. Do no harm? Forcing someone in chronic, debilitating pain, paralized, blind and deaf, riddled with tumors, to live out another 4 or 5 years in abject misery -- that IS harm. A clean, dignified death on your own terms is not.

    I think in a case like this a medical doctor's involvement is appropriate to ensure that the patient doesn't endure any needless pain and to ensure that the suicide attempt is successful.
