German top court overturns ban on organised assisted suicide

Germany’s law that bans organised assisted suicide breaches the constitution, the country’s top court ruled on Wednesday, a landmark decision in favour of groups that help people die when they choose, and doctors.

The plaintiffs wanted to overturn a law that has since 2015 outlawed assisted suicide undertaken by organisations or doctors who accepted a fee for their help.
