The problem is that suicide is a mortal sin. The Church assumes that a suicide was not culpable due to mental illness, thus they are buried from the Church and left to God's mercy. But, if you are of sound mind and plan the act to avoid suffering, well I doubt that repenting as you swallow the pills will cut it.
Fear, force, ignorance, habit, passion, and psychological problems can impede the exercise of the will so that a person may not be fully responsible or even responsible at all for an action.

Once society sanctions assisted suicide the genie is out of the bottle and there is no putting him back

But that is the point. The stigma is lifted, thus the teen who is
troubled who might have second thoughts about ending his life does it
because it is acceptable to do so.
The moral question aside, the problem is not the terminally ill person
in pain that you need to worry about, but society saying to that person
that if your pain is unbearable it is okay to end your life.
The trouble teen looks at that and says to himself, "my pain is unbearable, thus it is okay for me to kill myself."

At first I thought she had just passed out from drinking too much, so I just sat there next to her making sure she was still breathing. And then the breathing stopped and I had to perform CPR on her until the medics arrived. She died at the hospital the next morning. I'm only pointing this out because some religious people people seem to think that nonbelievers are taking the easy way out by not believing in a god or afterlife. My grief is indescribable and inconsolable because I believe there is no good evidence that I will ever get to see her again. I would give both of my arms and legs just to hear her laugh one more time. Atheism isn't an easy way out to ignore the morals and standards that most people believe. I really wish there was a god that would resurrect her spirit again someday so that I could talk to her again, but I just can't believe. I have seen all the mistakes and illogical stuff in the Bible, the same bible that said my sister was not equal to men. She was a devout atheist and freethinker, so according to the beliefs of some people here she will burn in hell for eternity. The one thing I am glad about when it comes to Christianity is that I studied the scriptures and philosophical teachings of the church enough to not have to worry about my sister being tortured in hellfire for eternity. If there really is a hell, then I will find my sister there and we will kill this evil god that sends people to a place like that.
