The Hippocratic Oath?
Despite all the advantages of death with dignity, some people still hold to a notion that for a physician who assists a patient in dying stands against the Hippocratic Oath. That may sound true but it is not. DO NO HARM! Allowing a patient to suffer for long is unarguably an act of harm to the patient. Ultimate relief from pain can be found through death and this will still be respecting the Oath.
