(ANSA) – ANCONA, 01 FEB – Within 7 months in the Marche region – after an initial provision in the case of Mario (invented name), a quadriplegic for 11 years, for whom the procedure is now ‘firm’ on the drug issue to be used – second similar order of the Court of Ancona for Antonio, also a quadriplegic: dissolving the reserve after the hearing on January 18, the judges ordered the Single Regional Health Authority (Asur) of the Marche to proceed with the verification of the conditions of the sick for access to assisted suicide, as sanctioned by the sentence of the Constitutional Court 242/2019 in the Cappato / DjFabo case. This was announced by the Luca Coscioni Association. The judge orders the Asur, reports the Ass. Coscioni, “to ensure, after obtaining the relative opinion of the territorially competent Ethics Committee, to ascertain: if Antonio is kept alive by life-sustaining treatments and suffering from an irreversible pathology, a source of physical or psychological suffering that he deems intolerable; if is fully capable of making free and informed decisions; whether the methods, method and drug chosen are suitable for guaranteeing the fastest, painless and dignified death possible.
According to the ordinance, in fact, “otherwise opinion would lead to a tacit abrogation of the ruling of the Constitutional Court and the maintenance of the status quo ante with respect to the ruling”. Repeal, observes the Ass. Coscioni, “which by law is not possible because a sentence of the Constitutional Court cannot be reformed or canceled by Parliament or by an ordinary Court”. (HANDLE).
