Salvation Army Nursing Home Must Allow Suicide

All New Briefs

Swiss Christian nursing home must allow assisted suicide: A court in Switzerland has ruled a Christian nursing home must allow assisted suicide for its patients or lose its tax-exempt status. The Salvation Army-run nursing home in the Canton of Neuchatel contested a recent law requiring charitable institutions to permit assisted suicide for patients who request to end their lives. A court ruled earlier this month that the nursing home must condone euthanasia or risk penalty, regardless of whether the law conflicts with the Salvation Army’s religious beliefs.
