Here is the judicial OPINION
So if you feel like a burden to your family or caretakers, if you feel worthless and downtrodden, if you just can't summon the courage to pull the trigger, well, the judge wants you to know now you have options. (Actually, you've always had them since they were right there in the Constitution all along. Silly us for not noticing).
Here's the essence of the "argument" from her opinion (commentary below the fold):
HH. This Court cannot envision a right more fundamental, more private or more
integral to the liberty, safety and happiness of a New Mexican than the right of a competent, terminally ill patient to choose aid in dying. If decisions made in the shadow of one’s imminent death regarding how they and their loved ones will face that death are not fundamental and at the core of these constitutional guarantees, than what decisions are? As recognized by the United States Supreme Court in Cruzan “[t]he choice between life and death is a deeply personal decision of obvious and overwhelming finality.” Cruzan, 497 U.S. at 281.
