Germany's Federal Constitutional Court rules that the right to die includes the freedom to “rely on the voluntary help of another person.”  Germany's Federal Constitutional Court rules that the right to die includes the freedom to “rely on the voluntary help of another person.” 

Credit...

So, here we go again. Germany’s highest court has overturned a ban on medically assisted suicide. This means that Germans wanting to end their own lives, or help someone else end theirs, will no longer have to leave the country to get the job done.

Isn't that great! 

According to a New York Times report, Hermann Gröhe, a former health minister who helped create the original ban on assisted suide, told reporters he believes the decision "would pave the way toward the normalization of suicide as a treatment option.”

Beatrix von Storch, a member of the far-right Alternative for Germany party, said the decision would have wide-ranging consequences and would create “a cult of death.”

Ya think? So where certain evil political parties in Germany just 70 years ago got comfortable with the idea of putting Germans to death on a mass scale, a new evil political party is now going to let German put themselves to death on a mass scale. And this they call "progress". 

Welcome to the New World Order.
