The German Euthanasia Association issued a statement in which it explains to interested parties that it will limit its services to those who have the Covid-19 vaccine.
In the text, posted on the Verein Sterbehilfe website, it is explained that “euthanasia and the preparatory examination for personal responsibility require human proximity”.
However, the association also explains, “human proximity is fertile ground for the transmission of the new coronavirus”.
For this reason, the Euthanasia Association determined that, as of November 19, access to its services without presenting a vaccination or recovery certificate will be prohibited, and these measures will be further added to the performance of rapid tests before any meeting in closed rooms.
Euthanasia in Germany was legalized in 2020 when the Federal Constitutional Court ruled that the prohibition in law violates personal self-determination and was therefore unconstitutional.
