Hawaii becomes 7th state to legalize medically assisted suicide so patients can 'die with dignity'

Hawaii has become the seventh state to legalize medically assisted suicide, a topic that has been deeply divisive in the medical community.

The practice that has come to be known as 'dying with dignity' involves prescribing life-ending medication to terminally ill patients.

Supporters say it's a compassionate choice to prevent suffering and critics say it's immoral and goes against the Hippocratic Oath which states: 'I will not give a lethal drug to anyone if I am asked, nor will I advise such a plan.'

Physician-assisted suicide is becoming increasingly common around the world and several other states including Massachusetts and Alaska have been considering its legalization.
