I have no objections to it. The right to life is a basic human freedom, and I feel that also includes the right to choose when to end one's own life. Some might argue that some of those people could be convinced to change their minds; while this may be true, I do not feel it (or any other argument) is a valid reason to allow the state, or anyone else, to police whether people choose to exercise their basic human right to life. There are those who would never change their mind no matter what might be said and their right to end their own life should not be infringed upon by any party, state or otherwise.
Doctors Without Borders: one of the few charity groups you can rely on to actually do real good in the world.

"The trouble with fighting for human freedom is that one spends most of one's time defending scoundrels. For it is against scoundrels that oppressive laws are first aimed, and oppression must be stopped at the beginning if it is to be stopped at all." - H. L. Mencken, unsourced

"There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there always has been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that 'my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.'"- Isaac Asimov, Column in Newsweek (21 January 1980) [source]
