A declaration at the European Parliament that supported euthanasia failed to garner support.
The Declaration on the dignity at the end of life was signed by 95 MEP's in three months. The declaration that was sponsored by Elena Valenciano from Spain, required the support of 751 MEP's.
The Declaration called on the European Commission and the Council to identify best practices across the European Union with regard to the provision of end-of-life health services and to facilitate the exchange of those practices between EU countries, which appears innocuous except that the declaration also supported euthanasia by stating that the right to life also constitutes a right to die.
