Euthanasia has been legalized in this country

There is precise control over how.

Active euthanasia has been legalized in New Zealand since Sunday, allowing incurable patients to end their lives with medical help under certain conditions.

The stipulations include that two doctors agree that the incurable patient has no more than half a year left in his life and should therefore be given the opportunity to choose the time of his own death with full information.

The law, which went into effect on Sunday, dates back to a referendum in October 2020 in which 65.2 percent of voters supported the introduction of active euthanasia, writes 444.hu.

According to the ACT party, which is putting the law before parliament, the regulation will give people with a terminal illness the right to decide their own destiny.

The Wellington Health Department estimates that there could be up to 950 people a year who will apply for the procedure and allow it in around 350 cases. At the same time, critics of the legislation have pointed out that active euthanasia can be abused to reduce health care costs, which will exacerbate the disadvantages of Indigenous people in Maori and the small islands of New Zealand.
