Euthanasia

In Switzerland, euthanasia is forbidden by Article 114 of the Swiss Penal Code. This prohibition is based on the Christian values and traditions of the country.


Assisted suicide

Assisted suicide (as such) is not forbidden, and this decision is based on the liberal values and traditions of the country. Only when a person has selfish reasons to assist a person, the assistant can be punished. This is laid down in Article 115 of the Swiss Penal Code: Wer aus selbstsüchtigen Beweggründen jemanden zum Selbstmorde verleitet oder ihm dazu Hilfe leistet, wird, wenn der Selbstmord ausgeführt oder versucht wurde, mit Freiheitsstrafe bis zu fünf Jahren oder Geldstrafe88 bestraft
