Two bills authorising assisted suicide have been presented to the Bundestag.
Two bills authorising assisted suicide have been presented to the German Parliament ahead of a debate in July. One of them bans assistance for a fee, which is legal in Switzerland, Belgium and the Netherlands; the other would grant the right to die to any competent adult who has been counselled by a doctor. In Germany it is currently illegal for a doctor to prescribe and administer a lethal medication. According to Deutsche Welle, the Bundestag hopes to pass new legislation on assisted suicide by November this year.
