Alot of people accused him of playing "God" but he once said that Medical and surgical doctors are doing the same thing by interrupting a natural, biological process by providing medication and surgeries to ill people. Is that not playing God?
Also, if a loved one is suffering from a terminal illness isn't it their right to say they don't want to suffer from it anymore? Why let them suffer until they die when they can die in peace? We do it for our pets why not for our loved ones?

I don't know. I'm not a big fan of suicide, but then again I have never been in a position where I am medically dependant for day to day living and I have never had a terminal illness. I imagine my opinion on the subject would change dramatically if I one day found myself in those circumstances. What he was doing was illegal so it doesn't really matter what I thought of him. Now that he has passed on, I guess it's up to his maker (if he believes in that) to judge him.
I would like to think that what he was doing was for the mercy of those that were dying and desperate for peace.
