Zurich
residents have voted to continue to allow assisted suicide for non-residents
despite a campaign to ban so-called suicide tourism.
78.4 percent of voters rejected a proposal to restrict access for foreigners to
assisted suicide only to those living in the canton for at least one year. A
second initiative, prompted by fringe conservative parties the Federal
Democratic Union and the Evangelical Party seeking a national ban on assisted
suicide, was rejected by a larger majority. The main parties on the right and
left had campaigned against both schemes. ~ Swissinfo.ch,
