The German Euthanasia Association (Verein Sterbehilfe) has declared that it will only help those who have been fully vaccinated against or recovered from covid.
Yes really….ironic as it sounds, assisted suicide it not allowed unless you’ve been fully jabbed
Anyone who has plans to be euthanized must first present proof of vaccination or recovery from the virus according to the new guidelines.
The Hamburg-based group put out a statement on which said: “assisted suicide and the preliminary examination of a patient’s ability to make decisions freely implies physical closeness between people. However, that is precisely the precondition for the spread of Covid.”
RT reports: In February 2020, Germany’s top court overturned a ban on providing euthanasia as unconstitutional.
A number of German regions have put in place strict curbs, banning the unvaccinated from most public places. Across the country only recovered or inoculated people can enter restaurants, museums, and similar venues, while those even with a negative Covid test cannot. Amid the surge in cases, the German states of Saxony and Bavaria have both canceled all Christmas markets.
German Chancellor Angela Merkel told her fellow party members on Monday that the current wave of Covid in Germany was worse than any previous one and called for stricter measures to contain it. The country’s health minister, Jens Spahn, went even further, claiming that “by the end of this winter everyone in Germany will either be vaccinated, recovered or dead.”
Those statements came as the seven-day infection rate per 100,000 people broke a new grim record on Wednesday, reaching the 404.5 mark, as reported by Germany’s disease control and prevention authority, the Robert Koch Institute.
