Protestors protest parliamentary vote on assisted suicide bills



Several hundred people on Thursday night demonstrated outside the parliament building in Lisbon to protest moves to decriminalise euthanasia.

Parliament will next Tuesday debate four legislative that would make it possible for people aged at least 18 and who are not suffering from mental problems or illness to request a medically assisted death on the grounds of suffering and of incurable disease.
