Manifesto on the discrimination on the fundamental right to a voluntary death between EU States
Since 2002, three European States have legalized the right to voluntary death in certain situations of irreversible suffering. On the other hand, many citizens of the remaining States are bound to travel abroad to end their lives, or forced to seek for clandestine euthanasia or assisted self-deliverance. These occur in every country, although without the regulations, safeguards and protocols expected for a 21st century society.
Because of this clear discrimination of Fundamental Rights under the European Union, the signatories below request the European Parliament:
- To undertake research on end-of-life decisions, especially on citizens forced to travel abroad to die and on clandestine euthanasia practices.
- To urge all Member States to regulate euthanasia and medically assisted suicide.
