Germany has some of the most liberal euthanasia laws in the world but German clinics have a line they just won’t cross – they won’t kill any patients that haven’t been vaccinated against COVID-19.
And before you scan this page looking for a disclaimer, no, this isn’t satire.
Apparently, doctors in Germany have no problem with helping patients say their final “goodbye, cruel world” so long as they’re protected against Covid.
In fact, German doctors are now turning away euthanasia requesters who aren’t up to date on their Covid vaccines.
Sounds a little counter-productive, but OK.
“As European countries battle to limit the spread of the virus, Verein Sterbehilfe – the German Euthanasia Association – has issued a new directive, declaring it will now only help those who have been vaccinated or recovered from the disease,” The Spectator explains.
Yet the doctors don’t seem to be too concerned with whether the patient themselves has Covid, however.
They are, after all, trying to help you exit the planet stage left.
The rub seems to be that they don’t want to catch the bug while helping people suiciding people.
However, the requirement is in place despite the shots not actually preventing transmission of the virus.
Nevertheless, patients must take steps to protect themselves from the “deadly” coronavirus if they want to commit suicide.
So if you’re trying to take yourself out and want a German doctor to help you do it, just make sure you’ve got your Covid passport handy before you head to the hospital.
They’ll need to make sure you’re healthy before sending you sailing off to the afterlife.
And maybe hang on to it afterward, too – at this rate, they’re probably checking them at the Pearly Gates.
