    You might be referring to "doctor assisted suicide", which is essentially if something happens to you and you're unable to live without breathing tubes etc or if you're in a coma for a long time, and instead of having to live out the rest of your days in a vegetative state, and you want them to cut off the machines and let you die. This usually happens when someone has stated before the occurrence happens that if it did, then they want the doctor to cut off the machines, that they don't want to live as a vegetable.

    That way, it's their choice to essentially commit suicide, but since they can't do it themselves, the doctor is helping them by turning off the machines.

    It means, you don't do it alone, someone helps.
