“Mexico City legalizes right to euthanasia”
(Global Times — January 6, 2017)
Mexico City has become the first entity within Mexico to legalize euthanasia, after the issue was approved Wednesday by the city’s constitutional assembly
The right to euthanasia will be enshrined in Article 11 of Mexico City’s new constitution, which will come into force in 2018.
In January 2016, Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto signed a law, allowing Mexico City to have its own local constitution.
