Pulling the Plug

If someone is on life support, they will continue living for the next while, unless you pull the plug. If you pull the plug, you are terminating that person’s life earlier than absolutely necessary. Technically this could be considered a murder. Oddly, religious people accept this, but balk at physician assisted suicide, even though the physician has the consent of the patient.
