In this article it is discussing about if doctors have the right to end a patients life physically on the patients terms. In other times like stated in the article"allowing physicians to prescribe lethal dose of medication to terminally ill patients."  There are so for three states in America that have allowed this to pass which are Oregon, Vermont, and Washington.
 "According to the 2012 data from Oregon and Washington, more than 90% of the 160 patients who used the Death With Dignity laws were enrolled in hospice at the time they took their life-ending medication doses" as stated in the article. The main area where this takes place is in the hospice care. They play the role in actually killing each patient. Using hospice care has not been on a decline neither a increase it has stayed at a steady pace. 

Personally to me. Death is Death. A person themselves shouldnt be deciding it. God has a time and place for you to come and go and its up to him not you.
