Right to Suicide and Assistance Therein

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 24 hours.

An individual cannot receive payment in cash or kind for the stated purpose of payment for providing assistance in a suicide.
