This article discusses an actual experience the authors had with a self-described rationally suicidal man with multiple sclerosis. After presenting some background on MS, the authors report initial interactions with the man verbatim and summarize subsequent correspondence in an analysis of the man’s claim that his decision to die was well reasoned and that he should be allowed a physician’s assistance.
