Italian Eurispes produces promising figures on public opinion in the end-of-life debate in Italy

 

Eurispes, an Italian Institute of Political, Economic and Social studies, a private entity, operates since 1982. One of the issues reviewed every year is the public opinion on ethical issues around the end-of-life.

In its 25th edition it reports promising figures, showing growth of adherence to euthanasia and sort like decisions, notwithstanding the fact that – as everywhere in the world – legal developments lag far behind public opinion.

Numbers are:

 

2012 (in %)

2013 (in %)

Pro euthanasia

50,1

64,6

Against assisted suicide

71,6

63,8

Pro assisted suicide (also in cases of non-terminal disease)

25,3

36,2

Living wills

65,8

77,3
