In one of the more interesting twists associated with the COVID era, you won’t be offing yourself with the help of a German euthanasia clinic unless you’ve received the COVID vaccine, the German Euthanasia Association has announced.
On November 19, Verein Sterbehilfe, the association for euthanasia, which is legal in Germany, updated its Code of Ethics to state that those wishing to die will need to get the COVID vaccine. Seriously.
“Euthanasia and the preparatory examination of the voluntary responsibility of our members willing to die require human closeness. Human closeness, however, is a prerequisite and breeding ground for coronavirus transmission. As of today, the 2G rule applies in our association, supplemented by situation-related measures, such as quick tests before encounters in closed rooms,” Verein Sterbehilfe states on its site via Google Translate.
“In the difficult task of balancing the protection of our members, employees and doctors with the practical organization of our everyday life in the association, Dr. Martin Goßmann, the head of our medical team, is on hand to advise.”
That’s right, the German euthanasia association won’t even talk to prospective clients about choosing death unless they go get vaccinated because, in their view, that unvaccinated person who wishes to die, could give one of their doctors the ‘VID before he or she dies and goes to the afterlife.
Germany’s COVID vaccination rate currently sits at 68.2% of the population who are fully vaccinated. The current 7-day death rate is 247 citizens. Officials said this week that they’re considering yet another full lockdown of the country over rising case counts.
“Vaccination is the way out of this pandemic,” Olaf Scholz, Germany’s chancellor-designate, said Wednesday.
It’s also the only way out if you’re wishing to be a euthanasia candidate looking to end it all.
Germany’s health minister, Jens Spahn, told citizens that by the time winter ends, “pretty much everyone in Germany will be vaccinated, recovered or dead.”
