Germany, decriminalized assisted suicide for those not terminally ill
the BERLIN - And’ a judgment that is breathtaking. That recognizes to everyone the complete freedom to decide how to die. The German constitutional Court has decriminalized assisted suicide. And the right to take his own life recognized by the judges of Karlsruhe includes the ability to get help from a third party. Above all: who wants to die, you may do so at any stage of life, and not only in the presence of an incurable disease. Andreas Vossruhle, president of the guardians of the Grundgesetz, has stated that “we can rammaricarci that someone take a decision like that, we can do anything to make him change his mind, but in the final analysis we must accept his decision”.

The judgment responds to the appeal of some doctors and patients against paragraph 217 of the criminal law that in 2015, he had introduced the ban on assisted suicide. The constitutional Court declared unconstitutional the rule because it restricts the right to decide how to die. A right which must include, this is the verdict era of the judges, also the possibility of taking his own life.

Vosskuhle specified that the legislator can introduce measures to prevent suicide, but that will have to accept the fact that without the possibility of external aid, the right to suicide would be limited. On the other hand, the judges point out that it is a right and not an obligation: therefore, no doctor will ever be able to be forced to help someone die.
