Czechs Discovered Euthanasia. In Switzerland

In In The News, Law on August 3, 2007 by Petr Bokuvka

Physician-assisted suicide is illegal in the Czech Republic. According to iDNES news server two Czechs have used the services of Dignitas facility in Switzerland. Czech authorities so far refuse to comment, or to admit they know about it.

It is interesting that some of the reasons why Czech legislators would not allow legal euthanasia are based on Roman Catholic traditions (the assisted-murder issue). The Czech Republic is 70 to 80-percent atheist. Euthanasia is exclusively personal thing. It doesn’t hurt anyone. A body is a set of cells that hold together. You can cut your hair, get your tongue pierced… same thing.
