It would be between that person and God, and would have nothing to do with me. If it is a consenting deal, i do not think there is anything wrong with it legally either.

Suicide is a touchy issue, even assisted suicide or euthanasia. As a result, I'm pretty undecided on this issue although I hate to see people suffer.

Why not take this commandent instead?

John 14:12 (New International Version)
12I tell you the truth, anyone who has faith in me will do what I have been doing. He will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father.


Jesus healed thousands of people most days of His ministry.
The Cross.. the Cross.
