    Assisted Suicide Over the past ten to twenty years a big issue has been made over a person+s right to commit suicide or not. The American courts have had to deal with everything from assisted suicides to planned suicides, and whether the constitution gives the American people the right to take their own lives or whether it says they have the power to allow someone else to take their lives.
