Spanish presidential candidate pledges to sign euthanasia law if elected


The Socialist party’s candidate for Spain’s upcoming presidential elections on Nov. 20. has stated that if elected, his first act would be to pass a law legalizing euthanasia.

“Since the ‘death with dignity’ law is not going to be processed, I am announcing that if Spaniards give me their trust it will be the first law I will sign,” Alfredo Perez Rubalcaba told reporters during a Aug. 22 briefing.

The administration of Spain’s current president, Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero, approved a measure last May that would have legalized euthanasia. In June it was sent to the Spanish parliament but has yet to be put to a vote.
