Assisted death only for vaccinated, euthanasia association says — Analysis
Anybody who wants to be executed must now present evidence of vaccinations or recovery from Covid. This is per Germany’s new guidelines.
A statement put out by the Hamburg-based group on Friday reads “assisted suicide and the preliminary examination of a patient’s ability to make decisions freely implies physical closeness between people. This is the exact precondition to the spreading of Covid.”
The German Supreme Court declared a ban against euthanasia unconstitutional in February 2020.
Many German regions have strict rules that ban unvaccinated persons from public places. In the entire country, only those with positive Covid testing can go into restaurants, museums, and similar establishments. In response to the increase in cases, both Bavaria and Saxony have cancelled all Christmas markets.
German Chancellor Angela Merkel said Monday to her party members that Covid was worse in Germany than ever before and demanded stricter measures for its control. The country’s health minister, Jens Spahn, went even further, claiming that “Everyone in Germany by the end this winter will have been vaccinated, cured or killed.”
Those statements came as the seven-day infection rate per 100,000 people broke a new grim record on Wednesday, reaching the 404.5 mark, as reported by Germany’s disease control and prevention authority, the Robert Koch Institute.
