The request seemed simple enough. He asked that he be allowed to die. He was deeply discouraged. And who could blame him? There seemed no hope he would survive.

An increasing number of people today are asking anew an age-old question: Is suicide or euthanasia—in fact, is death in any instance—a legitimate alternative to what some consider insoluble problems of mortal existence? In effect, people are wondering whether, under certain circumstances, death could be regarded as a friend. Apparently the man described above was tempted to think so—at least momentarily.
