I don't see how a government approved committee of psychiatrists spouting
psychobabble would prevent that.

All I know is that for reasons I don't pretend to understand euthanasia is
not a big issue this election and candidates aren't asked about it very
often, in one of the rare times when they were asked Hillary Clinton gave a
more libertarian answer than Gary Johnson did, while Donald Trump
apparently thought the question was so outlandish it wasn't worth

In Europe they've already gone further than that, In Holland anyone over
12 has that right, in Belgium anybody of any age has that right.
