Organic Law 03/2021, which entered into force on June 25, 2021, regulates the right of every person who meets the conditions of incurable disease and intolerable suffering to receive the necessary assistance to die. The regulation of euthanasia is based on the harmonization of:
— the right to life and integrity (physical and moral), and
— the right to dignity, freedom and autonomy of the will.
Both are fundamental principles protected by the constitution.
Public services must guarantee the provision of assistance in dying and must include it in the portfolio of services.
