For those who are terminally ill, life has nothing good, and it’s a familiar debate as for whether to help them die with dignity or not. This discussion is ongoing in most of the countries because the Declaration of Geneva in 1948 states that “The right of everyone to life shall be protected by law” and this principle was implemented in the European Convention on Human Rights.
However, the reality is something entirely different than what the rules say, and there are situations when someone is suffering from a terminal illness, making them wish for their own death. In these situations, because medicines and other therapies can’t help the terminally ill, the laws were changed a little, and some countries inserted the possibility to offer them the assisted suicide.
