The resolution applies the doctrine included in the ruling that rejected Vox’s appeal last March, but limits the issue of conscientious objection that did not address the appeal filed by the far-right party.
The Plenary Session of the Constitutional Court has rejected the PP’s appeal against the Euthanasia Law, as it previously did with Vox’s, making it clear that conscientious objection is limited only to health professionals without extending it to legal entities, as the popular party intended. .
The resolution applies the doctrine included in the ruling that rejected Vox’s appeal last March, but limits the issue of conscientious objection that did not address the appeal filed by the party led by Santiago Abascal.
Thus, the ruling maintains that “the only actions capable of being exonerated from the legal duty to guarantee the right to provide assistance in dying”, in the terms in which it has been configured by the LORE, because they are covered by conscientious objection, “are the interventions of health professionals, regardless of their professional category.”
“It is only with respect to such interventions when it must be noted that conflict situations may arise due to intimate, ideological or moral convictions, which justify the withdrawal of the health professional from an intervention that constitutes, in general, a legal imperative,” adds the court.
And for this reason, it specifies that “beyond these exceptional cases, extending conscientious objection to an institutional setting as the appellants intend, would not only lack constitutional basis, but would put at risk the effectiveness of the health care itself.”
