Denial of the right to die

The right to die may be claimed by each individual on account of his or her liberty to decide. For example, terminally ill patients in the final stages of a disease who are experiencing intense pain may wish to die sooner. This desire, which could be fulfilled by the withholding of essential medications and life-support systems, is thwarted by attending physicians, family, and by the general attitude of society.
