    Oregon, Washington, Montana, Vermont, and New Mexico most certainly do not allow assisted suicide for the mentally ill. States that allow assisted suicide do so for terminally ill patients in chronic pain. No one executes people for being crazy.

    Well here in the UK, who's section you are asking on, is also illegal. The mentally ill may not have the mental function to make that decision, and the Drs over here sign an oath to save lives not end it. They are not God despite some thinking they are.

    No, somebody with a mental illness can't make informed choices on these maters. Assisted suiced should only be for the terminaly ill.

    You have a serious failure of understanding of mental illness. IT IS NOT A TERMINAL ILLNESS with no treatment or cure. Mental illness is very treatable, meaning persons are not "caused" to live in misery.

    no one should result to suicide and just because someone is mentally ill DOESNT mean they are going to live their life in pain. they make medication and therapy and mental hospitals to teach you coping skills and things. no one has to result to suicide and it's a very sad thing that they do, they deserve help not "assisted suicide"
