Ira W. DeCamp Professor of Bioethics at the University Center for Human Values of Princeton University
Pro to the question "Should Euthanasia or Physician-Assisted Suicide Be Legal?"
"Whatever reasons there may be for preserving at least a part of the traditional distinction between killing and allowing to die--for example, maintaining that it is worse to kill strangers than to fail to give them the food they need to survive--these reasons do not apply when...a person wants to die, and death would come more swiftly and with less suffering if brought about by an act (for example, giving a lethal injection) than by an omission (for example, waiting until the patient develops an infection, and then not giving antibiotics)."
