An 83-year-old woman committed suicide in Zaragoza after the refusal of doctors to process her euthanasia

An 83-year-old woman committed suicide last Saturday in Zaragoza pulling himself empty from his house after several times claim his right to euthanasia and not receive an answer, as he published 'the newspaper of Aragon' based on a report of the right association To die dignified (DMD). From this group criticize the "total silence" of both the doctor and the health center of it, that they did not even process the request of it to have a dignified death when the woman "met the requirements to ask".

According to this medium, the woman, called Emilia, had a congenital hip dislocation that had caused her serious physical deterioration over the years. She had no solution or possibility of improvement and for three years she could not go down to the street since she was prostrated in a bed and attended by her family while she suffered constant pain.

Since the DMD Association, they say that Emilia had been informed on several occasions on euthanasia with his social worker and "he had tried to commit suicide twice", but when the law of regulation of euthanasia was approved the procedures to carry it out without imagining It would be so complicated.

It was at the beginning of July when the woman presented for the first time the request to her family doctor, who did not want to process her. This attempt was followed by others, but she never got that at the health center they ignored him. She even came to contact management, where she was told that they were going to get "an evaluating committee" that did not get in touch with them either.

Since the association they recognize that any doctor has the right to conscientious objection, but in that case, another doctor would have to take charge of the case, something that did not happen.
