Lithuania official proposes to legalize euthanasia

A Lithuanian MP has proposed to legalize euthanasia in Lithuania.

The draft law prepared by Marija Ausrine Povilioniene proposes to establish general guidelines for euthanasia and its conditions and procedures.

Povilioniene calls to "regulate rights and obligations of those patients who have expressed wish for euthanasia as well as to regulate the licensing of the provision of euthanasia services."

The draft law establishes the right of a person who is terminally ill, experiencing unbearable physical and (or) spiritual pain that cannot be relieved, to voluntarily choose to end his life; the right to order to conduct euthanasia for him in advance, if he would not be able to express his will himself due to unconscious condition determined by a disease or injury.

MP Povilioniene says that the adoption of the law on Euthanasia would fill in the gap of legal regulations, when there are no possibilities for patients who are terminally ill or are in intense physical and (or) spiritual pain to conduct euthanasia to escape prolonged suffering. At present euthanasia in Lithuania is forbidden.

What do you think? Do you think euthanasia in Lithuania should be legalized?
