Right-to-die in Switzerland

More than 2,000 people have received medically prescribed doses of barbiturates to kill themselves in Switzerland over the past 10 years, according to figures kept by the three main right-to-die organizations.

So-called assisted suicide is legal there as long as the agencies that arrange death do so for “honorable reasons,” without seeking profit, although they may charge basic fees.

In North America, terminally ill people often turn to ERGO for information and the Final Exit Network for personal guidance.

To find organizations around the world, go to the World Federation of Right to Die Societies.
