On the general matter of assisted suicide:
(1) I couldn’t care less what people with ideological or theological fixations think. They are entitled to their intellectual pleasures, but they have no right to foist their conclusions on citizens of a free society.
(2) The only jurisprudential objection to assisted suicide is that if it is permitted, then it will be easier for ingenious people to commit homicide.
This seems to me to be true. However, I can’t believe it is beyound the wit of our jurists to devise laws that (a) accommodate the sincere, reasonable, non-transient wish to die of a Daniel James while thwarting the fellow who wants to bump off Granny for his inheritance.
If that is beyond the wit of our jurists, we are paying them too much.
