Recently, a Bengaluru lady went to the Delhi High Court to stop a friend's flight to Europe for euthanasia.
A petition submitted to the court claims that the man has had chronic fatigue syndrome since 2014 and that he intends to fly to Switzerland for euthanasia or physician-assisted suicide, both of which are not legal for non-terminally ill people in India.
"Complex, incapacitating, long-term neuroinflammatory disease" describes chronic fatigue syndrome.
Case of Aruna Shanbaug: The Supreme Court of India (SC) addressed the debate over euthanasia, and in 2018 it issued a ruling that made the right to a dignified death a component of the right to life under Article 21.

Euthanasia can be classified into two categories based on the method of dying:
In the US, assisted suicide is lawful in Oregon and California but euthanasia is prohibited nationwide.

To relieve patients' suffering and loved ones' suffering is sometimes reasonable.
Active voluntary euthanasia must be avoided since it can make murder simple.
