Dr. Emson states that the issue of decriminalizing assisted suicide comes down to 2 points: either you support legalizing assisted suicide or you do not. He raises another question: does the part of society that does not support assisted suicide have the right to enforce observance of this belief on the rest of society? With respect to the legalization of assisted suicide, Emson offers 6 guidelines that could be used to start a discussion of this issue.
