Portugal considers doctor-assisted suicide and euthanasia

  • The predominantly Catholic country Portugal has legalized same-sex marriage and abortions in recent times. The Portuguese lawmakers on Tuesday are going to decide whether to allow euthanasia and doctor-assisted suicide or not in the country. Though the outcome of the vote is highly uncertain, if the law is passed then Portugal will become one of those handfuls of countries which permit euthanasia under certain circumstances.
