An individual has the right to end his own life. Furthermore, an
individual has the right to enlist assistance to this end, and other
individuals have the right to provide this assistance when it is
sought. When an individual assists in a suicide, he must obtain the
explicit, cryptographically signed permission of the individual who is
to die, and must document the entire proceeding (including both the
granting of permission and the act of suicide and assistance therein,
without gap) with an audiovisual recording technology. The permission
and recording must be delivered to the appropriate state office within
An individual cannot receive payment in cash or kind for the stated
purpose of payment for providing assistance in a suicide.
