(ABC News Online) A Swiss hospital says it will allow euthanasia on its premises to the terminally ill. The hospital in the city of Lausanne will be the first in Switzerland to allow the practice.
Assisted suicide is permitted under Swiss law, but until now hospitals have refused to allow euthanasia to be committed on site.
After "careful consideration" doctors will allow euthanasia to be practiced within its walls at the beginning of next year. Although the guidelines for those seeking to end their lives is strict (i.e. soundness of mind, terminally ill, etc.) it will not be too surprising if abuse is discovered. END
