Got me there, I was going to add "this is going to be country specific". Should've done that, I see. As a reminder, my country hasn't executed people since war and currently has no legislation that would allow such matters during peacetime. However, in the first case there is a clear violation of the Hippocratean Oath. Wiki: Notice that "no one" includes the patient herself. I do recognise that the previous can be, in turn, in conflict with this. ...and that there are dated parts anyway in the Oath. But the fact that doctors take the oath is something to think of anyway.
