Swiss Restrictions - Explained

In recent weeks, the Swiss Academy of Medical Sciences (which governs medical practice in Switzerland) issued new guidelines for doctors working in assisted suicide.

Because the Swiss Criminal Code is not a medical model law (it is not concerned with degree of illness), in Switzerland anyone can help anyone else to die as long as the motives of the person assisting are altruistic (and not for personal enrichment).

The person receiving the help must have mental capacity and must do the action that brings about their death themselves.

Theoretically, a person can be aged, but in reasonably good health and get help to die.

This is where SAMS has stepped in, ruling that it is no longer ethically justifiable that 'healthy' can get medical help to die.

If you are concerned about whether you would qualify for a VAD in Switzerland, Exit invites you to ask your questions in the Peaceful Pill Forums.
