Assisted death is not a right but a privilege
I would have to contradict the statement heading Dr Cooper's article 'An assisted death is a right for all'.
Too many things are claimed as a 'right', when in fact they are only a privilege brought about by membership of a society.
It is a logistic tautology to insist that anyone can be entitled to have any 'right' where that right includes or implies a necessity for co-operation by any other person. This is not a right - rather it should be seen as a conditional privilege.
