For the longest while, the practice of medicine had a specific purpose: to heal. The Hippocratic oath still affirms this. Recently, however, many have argued that it should include the right of patients to take their own life when they, or a medical professional, no longer believes it worth living. The “right to die” movement is not only a movement about the rights of individual patients to end their life on their own terms but, in part, requiring health care professionals and providers to provide the means by which to do so.
