I can't get my head round the fact CH is such a Catholic country yet it is so liberal towards assisted suicides.
I've got a lot of learning about about the culture of the Swiss

Switzerland has a lower proportion of Catholics than any nearby country, with the exception of Germany.

Re: More assisted suicides in 2011: report

I am sure we all have lists and recommendations ...but apart from jokes and the local...35% is huge and it is sad...

This place Dignitas is like...maybe...4 km from the place we live and we mostly see it when we ride our bikes. I mean...only seeing the place makes you wonder...
