were 6672 euthanasia deaths and only 150 assisted suicide deaths; the

total comprising at least 4.5% of all deaths.

assisted suicide for ‘completed life’; where a person over a certain age may

declare that they wish to end their lives even though they may have no

serious medical issues." Click here to
