Euthanasia major issue in French presidential election

February 22, 2012

Euthanasia has become a leading issue in the French presidential election: President Nicolas Sarkozy opposes its legalization, while François Hollande, a Socialist, supports it.

Writing in L’Osservatore Romano, Ferdinando Cancelli comments on the growing support for euthanasia in France and calls for more widespread training in palliative care as a “third way” between “the disproportion of treatments and the false solution of euthanasia.”
