Add Switzerland to List of PAS-Friendly States?
There's an oldish BBC report (Aug. 12, 2002) that reports on a group (Dignitas) that helps patients commit suicide with the full knowledge and acquiescence of Swiss authorities.The story hit the AP and Bioethics.net in December 2005, and then the BMJ in its January 7, 2006, issue, when a Swiss hospital, Vaud University Hospital Center, announced that it would allow another of Switzerland's four assisted-suicide organizations (Exit Society) to assist in the suicides of patients who have been admitted to the hospital and can no longer go home.
