State the protector of its citizen cannot give ‘right to die’ as giving this right is legally and morally incorrect. But there arises some situation which can’t be solved, like having an incurable disease renders the person helpless and dependent and in these situation a person can be given the right to end his life.It is this side of the right to die which is much in debate as some countries of the world have given this right and some of them have not.
