You'd be opening up a can of worms tbh. Wouldn't be long before you had a few cunning serial killers or general persons with bad intentions produce signed agreements/testimonies from victims. Probably in some cases genuinely convincing people to go along with it

It should be allowed. We can now keep people alive for decades in situations where they have no quality of life and whre they would most certainly have died at any point in history before now. We started doing this without considering the ethics of it. Is being housebound for 40 years a life?
There's a famous quote along the lines that a life without freedom is not worth living and I agree. If I ever lose my independence just let me go.

I'm not sure I understand what assisted suicide in the case of mental illness would mean. Isn't the idea of assisted suicide that those who resort to it are physically incapable of taking their own lives? Or would it be about freedom from prosecution for those who supported someone's decision to end their life?
