With euthanasia and physician-assisted suicide, the individual is usually in a lot of pain or is suffering, and these options are available to them in most states. Assisted suicide is no different than basic suicide, except that it requires the help of others to go through with it.Like suicide, assisted suicide is undergone when a person is unable to handle being alive anymore. They are having problems in life with their family or friends, or are simply having problems with themselves that they feel unable to solve. Some people are even in positions of being ill or in pain, yet live in a state that does not sanction euthanasia or physician-assisted suicide, so they take it upon themselves and the help of another to end their life. Each person that contemplates suicide, assisted or not, has their own reasons for why they want to end their life. It all comes down to the fact that they do not want to continue living. Similarly, each person has their own reason for deciding against suicide by self for assisted suicide. In some cases of assisted suicide, the person wanting to end their life is afraid of going through with it, even though they know that it is what they want, without any doubts or second thoughts. They resort to the help of someone else to do the dirty work, which can sometimes have consequences that will be discussed herein. In other instances, the individual needs help in getting the items they need to go through with the suicide on their own.
