California lawsuit seeking right for physicians over assisted suicide for terminally ill patients

A lawsuit has been filed by a cancer patient and five doctors, seeking to exempt physicians who provide assisted suicide to terminally ill patients.

According to the lawsuit filed in San Francisco Superior Court, physicians who provide such assistance so that patients can end their lives are not encouraging them to commit suicide. Instead, they are giving them the option of a peaceful death.
