North Carolina Laws on Assisted Suicide


North Carolina has no laws regarding assisted suicide specifically. Traditionally, assisted suicide is covered by common law in the state but North Carolina abolished suicide as a common law crime. It is unclear whether the suicide common law would have included assisted-suicide.

§ 14-17.1. Crime of suicide abolished.

The common law crime of suicide is hereby abolished as an offense.
