Does patient's autonomy = planned suicide? PDF Print E-mail
Written by Dr. Shahid Athar   

Q. Is patient's autonomy (i.e. right to not seek treatment) equal to planned suicide? If so, should it be allowed?

A. Patient's autonomy involves a sound mind while suicide decision is made in severe depression. One can refuse treatment because of side effects, but to kill yourself is against the will of God.
