EXIT criticizes national research project
"The five organisations which legally offer assisted suicide in Switzerland have criticised a government-commissioned research programme led by a Catholic theologian, saying the project is too biased. Exit Romandie, Exit Deutsche Schweiz, Dignitas, Ex International und Lifecircle demand the Swiss National Science Foundation (SNSF) readjust the national research programme end of life NRP 67. They claim the CHF 15 million programme is "unscientific", "biased" and "full of Catholic morality". [...] The organisations are convinced that the research project is a sham, to bring the subject back on the political agenda. They have cancelled their cooperation for the time being. [...] Assisted suicide organisation have more than 100,000 members. Every year they assist 550-600 people in dying, many of them from abroad."
