Switzerland Government Official Wants Assisted Suicide Death Tourism to Stop

A leading government official in Switzerland wants the European nation to stop the infamous practice of “death tourism.” That’s where residents of other countries come to the mountainous nation to have pro-euthanasia groups help them engage in an assisted suicide.

Swiss Justice Minister Eveline Widmer-Schlumpf says the practice is giving her nation a bad name.

“Today somebody can come to Switzerland and already the next day can have an assisted suicide through one of these assisted suicide organizations. This should not be possible,” Widmer-Schlumpf told the Sonntags Zeitung newspaper.

Widmer-Schlumpf wants to see legislation introduced that would help slow down the practice, since it is unlikely that she can get the Swiss parliament to ban assisted suicides.

She told the newspaper she wants a reflection period in place between the time when the patient comes to Switzerland and the pro-euthanasia group Dignitas carries out the suicide request.

During the reflection time, the patient would receive counseling from a third-party group. Widmer-Schlumpf also wants more transparency with regard to the funding of Dignitas and similar groups that kill patients coming to Switzerland.

In May, Dignitas released new figures showing more people than ever are opting to have the staff take their lives and that the number of Britons going there to die is on the rise.

UK residents are now in the top three nationalities of the people who go to the euthanasia center. […]

Now here’s where Islamic talents can be put to good use — just as old-casino demolitions in Vegas can — in order to rival the terrorism industry and possibly diminish its appeal. Switzerland has both euthanasia tourism and increased Muslim immigration. Muslims in Switzerland and everywhere else should cash in on this trend. Start a business called “Infidel Assisted Suicide.” It would be perfectly legal under Sharia Law since killing of infidels is encouraged. Assisted suicide parties could be thrown, where they kill two birds with one bomb: getting rid of infidels and giving them what they want. And since more countries are increasingly accepting of Sharia Law it shouldn’t be a problem in Europe. The only surprising part of this story is that Brits feel they have to leave their Islamic country in order to be killed, when today’s Sharia England is already one big suicide party.
