Euthanasia Is Soaring as Nations Relax Suicide Laws

Euthanasia has been soaring in nations around the world in recent years, with many countries increasingly relaxing regulations as citizens line up for “assisted suicide.”

The relaxation of euthanasia laws has predictably led to vast increases in the number of people who are dying under the label of “medically-assisted dying.”

As Slay News has reported, far-left Canada, one of the world “leaders” in euthanasia, has been accused of using the laws to kill off sick and poor citizens who would be a burden on the nation’s socialist systems.

But Canada is not alone as so-called “assisted suicide” is also booming in other countries.

For years, Switzerland has been a haven for those wanting to say goodbye to the cruel world.

The European nation has been welcoming people from all over the world to get euthanized.

Exit Deutsche Schweiz is an assisted suicide society that recently issued a press release boasting about an increase in the number of people who have died in the last year.

“In 2022, 1125 members decided to die self-determined and accompanied by EXIT Deutsche Schweiz,” the press release said.

“This means that 15 percent more members used the support of a suicide companion than in 2021 (973) and 23 percent more than in 2020 (913).”

Additionally, there was an increase in the number of consultations for assisted suicide compared to years past.

There was also an increase in the number of members.

Switzerland has some of the world’s most permissive assisted suicide laws.

In Switzerland, people can be euthanized even if they’re perfectly healthy.

Colombia is another country that welcomes euthanasia.

However, the status of assisted suicide in Colombia is far more murkier than in other countries.

It is largely unregulated, and the Colombian Supreme Court declared euthanasia constitutional in 1997.

In 2022, the court officially approved euthanasia, whereas it previously had just been decriminalized.

DescLab, a Colombian assisted suicide advocacy group, reported on statistics over the past seven years.

In 2015, there were only four deaths from euthanasia.

By 2021, there were 95, and by October 2022, there were 99.

DescLab noted that the number of people interested in dying has grown rapidly, with an average of 31 requests per month.

“In other words, the practice of euthanasia has multiplied by 24 in 8 years, a not insignificant figure that shows that as time goes by, the issue is positioned in the media and in public opinion and people have family conversations on the subject, more people are interested in making autonomous decisions about the end of their lives,” they wrote.

“Debate about a medically assisted death law continues despite the fact that – from 1998 to 2022 – 16 different legislative initiatives have been tabled in the Congress of the Republic and none of them has succeeded.

“To date, regulatory gaps continue to be filled by other public actors, and the need for legislative efforts is less and less relevant in view of the effective enjoyment of the right to a dignified death of people in Colombia.”
