Euthanasia as expression of devout trust? The central German churches stand in unison in their strict disapproval of the liberalisation of euthanasia. Interestingly this position is not shared by many Christian and other big churches in Europe. The controversial role model in other European countries and whether new rules are necessary in Germany are discussed. Frieß describes the central positions of the legal and theological controversies. He shows inconsistencies and critically questions the disapproving statements of the churches. Finally he pursues lines of argumentation which lead to a reasoned yes to the acceptance of assisted suicide and euthanasia.
