Euthanasia in Italy, Fabio’s appeal: “State help me die”


“Dear Italian State, I have been reduced to this for 18 years. Every day my condition becomes more and more unsustainable. Help me to die”.

An irreversible condition – explains the Luca Coscioni Association by spreading the video-appeal of the man, the third person to have requested assisted suicide in Italy – which prevents him from moving any part of his body, with the exception of the eyes through the which communicates through an eye pointer. Fabio, in contact with Mina Welby thanks to his brother Andrea since the time of Piergiorgio, asked the Coscioni association – reconstructs the institution in a note – for information on the living will and on the possibilities of legally viable end-of-life choices in Italy, in order to end one’s life without suffering. He also contacted Marco Cappato directly for information on the possibility of reaching Switzerland.

But since March 15, when the medical report was sent to the Ethics Committee, no opinion has yet been received, neither on his condition nor on how to proceed with medically assisted suicide. “Fabio asks to put an end to his suffering in a painless way, with the fastest and most respectful ways of his dignity. It is his right, based on the sentence of the Constitutional Court in the ‘Cappato / Antoniani case’ – declared Gallo and Cappato, national secretary and treasurer of the Coscioni Association – Once again, as happened with Mario and Antonio, the delay of the Asur in responding to his request, in violation of legal obligations, entails suffering which for Fabio has been unbearable for years “.
