Luxembourg has become the third European country to legalise euthanasia. I have included in this email the article from the AFP Press and two articles from the Luxembourg media explaining the constitutional crisis that was created by legalising euthanasia.
Luxembourg's Grand Duke Henri refused to sign the bill into law. His actions held up the bill which had passed in the Luxembourg parliament by a vote of 30 to 26.
The result was that the Luxembourg parliament unanimously voted to remove the power of the Grand Duke by changing article 34 of their constitution.
We are saddened that Luxembourg has decided to legalise the direct and intentional killing of its residents through euthanasia, but we are thankful that the Grand Duke had the fortitude to stand his ground and temporarily hold off the legalisation in his nation.
The Grand Duke has lost all his constitutional power because he attempted to stop an unjust law in his country.
