Good example and I have another. Lets say you have an elderly grandmother living with you who has a multitude of physical problems. Her life expectancy is not good and she is totally dependant on you for survival. Taking care of her is a drain on you, both financially and emotionally. One day you sit down with her doctor and dicuss your "options". He says for a fee he could easily increase the dosage on one of her medications and she would simply fail to wake up one morning. Is the doctor then a hired killer or since both agreed should neither be charged with murder? Is it okay for a physician to end life simply because he has a license to practice medicine?
