Assisted suicide, bureaucratic persistence against Mario: "To die he has to pay 5,000 euros"

“Mario” (the name is fictional) 44 years old from the Marches completely paralyzed for 12, due to a car accident, is the first person who can legally choose medically assisted suicide in Italy. In the absence of a law, however, the Italian state does not bear the costs of assisted suicide assistance. He does not dispense the drug, does not provide the appropriate equipment, does not provide the doctor: in order to finally be able to choose about his life, Mario will have to bear an expense of about 5,000 euros in equipment and drugs. In particular, there is a need for an infusion tool which costs € 4,147.50. In addition to the pain, in short, the mockery.

A long judicial battle

This was announced by the Luca Coscioni Association, which assisted Mario in his judicial battle against the single health authority of the Marche which refused to apply the protocol on assisted suicide to the man, allowed by sentence number 242 of 2019 on the case by Dj Fabo. “For this reason, the Luca Coscioni Association has launched a fundraiser to help Mario meet the necessary expenses. The proceeds from the donation will allow Mario, when he wishes, and other people in his condition, to exercise the right to choose to place an end to their sufferings “, on the law in the note.

Parliament could find a solution, but the text is unsatisfactory and is covered up in the Senate. In order not to put the economic burden on the shoulders of Mario and, for the future, of the sick in his condition, we have therefore decided to become promoters of the collection of essential funds. of unbearable suffering and against one’s will “.
