Portuguese parliament is against asking people to decide on euthanasia in a referendum.

Besides the right and far right, all parties have indicated that they would prefer the decision on assisted suicide be made by Portugal’s 230 MPs.

All parties on the left are in favour of legalizing euthanasia, except for the Communists, who argue that euthanasia is an easy way out for the government, which it says should rather be doing more in terms of palliative care.
