Thanks for the tip. However, I think Holland's law is more liberal.

Recently there was a case of a well-known British orchestra conductor who wished to die along his wife who was suffering from terminal illness. I do not remember the details except that he was having serious physical limitations due to old age and simply did not wish to continue to live. They went to Holland to have their wish fulfilled, and the case generated some publicity.

PS. Here's some info regarding the above case.
