Assisted suicide – where someone is given the means to end their own life, is now legal in Austria 💊💊
There are very strict criteria:
• Adults must be terminally ill, or have a permanent debilitating condition.
• Two doctors must assess the case 👩⚕️👩⚕️
• Minors and people with mental health conditions are excluded
• Patients must wait 12 weeks to reflect on their decision (or 2 weeks if they are terminally ill)
After this time, they are given a prescription for lethal drugs.
