People want right to end their own life
Most people living in German-speaking Switzerland expect to get support from their doctor on choosing how they want to end their life.
The survey, conducted by assisted-suicide organisation, Exit, will help them begin “intensive discussions with doctors”.
They have also called for assisting with suicide to be a “voluntary medical activity”.
The online survey involved 1,036 people over the age of 50, and was carried out by the LINK Institute.
94% of people wanted neutral information about end of life decisions from their doctors and 72% saw being given information about the right to end their own life as a good thing.
