The yesterday announced the judgment of the Federal constitutional court is a model of how historic. In a country especially, where a mighty Phalanx, especially of CSU-politicians, and Church representatives organized euthanasia categorically condemned, and even to the euthanasia program of the Nazis is remembered.
the Bundestag had made in 2015 for organised assisted Suicide is punishable.
