Re: EXIT would you consider being a member?

Here's an article about the frustrating situation in Germany.

A Court determined that the right to die exists and the means should be made available to those who wish to do so. However, the Minister of Health at the time that the Court ruled, was against it, and did not get the laws drawn up as he was ordered to do. Moreover, he inofficially told all his staff to decline every application, of which there were nearly 200. Those people, ill, made the effort and spent the money on getting together all the assessments and reports, for a purpose that was, unbeknown to them or to the public (let alone to the Court!) hopeless before it started, because the Minister said no, against the order of the Court.

The current Minister of Health has also not produced the necessary laws, afraid that there will be negative feedback. So people wait. And suffer unnecessarily.
