Now The Swiss Want Assisted Suicide In Nursing Homes

Forgive many macabre chortle. A Swiss region, pushed by the prodeathers, is set to allow assisted suicide in nursing homes which will (ahem) be "strictly controlled." Uh-huh. That's what the Dutch and the Belgians said, and those "safeguards" very quickly faded away. Death, death, we want death!!
Assisted suicide set to be legalised in Swiss old peoples' homes
A Swiss region is poised to give old people in state-subsidised care homes the right to die via assisted suicide if that is their wish.
The assisted suicide organisation Exit, which already helps terminally ill patients in a number of nursing homes, forced a poll on the issue in Vaud – a Swiss first - back in 2009 and garnered the required number of signatures to make it law.
Now there will be one more referendum to decide if the local government's proposals, which slightly water down the Exit plans, become law. more
