Opinion 118/CNECV/2022 on Bill no. 95/XV/1 - mandatory referendum on the decriminalisation of medically assisted death (Executive Summary)

The National Council of Ethics for the Life Sciences (CNECV) was asked for an opinion on Bill no. 95/XV/1 (CHEGA political party) on the compulsory holding of a referendum on medically assisted death (also referred to as medical assistance in dying – MAID). Although the Bill falls within the scope of medically assisted death, its main question refers to the requirements of mandatory holding of a referendum to change the legal status of central matters constitutionally consecrated as fundamental rights, in this case, the right to life.
