German top court to rule on euthanasia law
This week, the German Constitutional Court announced that it will hand down its judgment on the euthanasia law on 26 February 2020.
The Court has reviewed paragraph 217 of the criminal code concerning assisted suicide following a complaint regarding the criminalization of euthanasia.
The legalization of euthanasia and assisted suicide in other European countries such as Belgium or the Netherlands has led to a dramatic increase in the number of euthanasia deaths each year.
Belgium’s laws and the legalization of euthanasia are currently being challenged at the European Court of Human Rights in Mortier v. Belgium.
