Physician-Assisted Suicide

The American Medical Association defines physician-suicide as occurring when “a physician facilitates a patient’s death by providing the necessary means and/or information to enable the patient to perform the life-ending act.”[1] For example,
the physician provides sleeping pills and information about the lethal dose, while aware that the patient may commit suicide. [2]
