Supreme Court of Georgia is hearing assisted suicide case.

State of Georgia.
The Final Exit Network, a group of people who assist people to commit suicide, will have their case heard by the Supreme Court of Georgia.

Members of the Final Exit Network were charged for assisted suicide in the death of a man who was recovered from cancer, but who was experiencing significant depression.

The members of the Final Exit Network are challenging the provisions in the law that restrict advertising and publicly speaking about assisted suicide. They are arguing that it is an issue of free speech, whereas the defense is stating that the law was drafted to discourage suicide and assisted suicide.
