Within Europe, euthanasia is legal in Belgium, Luxembourg, The Netherlands and Switzerland.
Switzerland has been labelled as destinations for ‘suicide tourism’ with many German and some British citizens wishing to end their lives early due to disability, terminal illness or uncontrollable and unbearable pain.
Dignitas is one organisation who arrange accompanied suicides. Besides offering this they also offer suicide prevention for those who do not qualify.
