For this reason, the appellate court dismissed the complaint entirely.Republican opponents of the ballot measure intend to appeal the appellate ru...

Culture of death advances in Spain with two new developments

null / Credit: Josh Applegate/UnsplashACI Prensa Staff, Jun 19, 2024 / 17:30 pm (CNA).The culture of life suffered two setbacks as the culture of death advanced again in Spain: The government is proposing to extend euthanasia to people with mental illness, while the Constitutional Court ruled in favor of abortion for minors 16 and over without parental knowledge.According to the Diario Médico journal, the Spanish government's Ministry of Health is going to modify the "Manual of Good Practices for Euthanasia" to include mental illnesses.The draft of the planned change states that the Organic Law for the Regulation of Euthanasia "does not exclude mental illness, allowing people with an unbearable suffering due to the presence of a mental illness to request PAM [aid in dying] on ??equal terms with those whose suffering comes from a bodily illness."Consequently, the government would apparently allow euthanasia for people with autism, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD),...
