Euthanasia advocate Carlos Vasquez dies at 79

Carlos Vasquez, a prominent advocate for euthanasia and assisted suicide, has sadly passed away at the age of 79. Vasquez, who had been battling Parkinson’s disease and Progressive Supranuclear Palsy (PSP), made headlines for his unwavering commitment to promoting the right to die with dignity.

Born and raised in Spain, Vasquez became a quadriplegic after a tragic beach accident. His own experience with severe disabilities fueled his fight to be allowed access to assisted death. In March 2021, Spanish congress passed a law allowing assisted dying.
