Thus, the court decided that the right to die on their own belongs to personal human rights. Now in Germany a terminally ill person has the right to commit suicide or to enlist the help of a third party.

Despite this, the court decision does not mean that the legislators would be able to regulate the activities of organisations that promote euthanasia.

There are three types of euthanasia:

  • Voluntary – is provided with the patient’s consent is permitted in Belgium, Colombia, the Netherlands and Canada;
  • Non-voluntary – when the consent of the patient is unavailable, and this kind of euthanasia is prohibited in all countries;
  • Involuntary – without the knowledge or without the consent of the patient. This phenomenon is also illegal and is considered murder;
