BOB UNRUH wnd.com Judges in the European Union are on track to legalize suicide-on-demand through the case of a healthy Swiss woman who decided she wanted to die and sued when doctors refused to prescribe poison. The dispute is between Alda Gross and her Swiss government, which already allows doctor-prescribed death under certain circumstances.

Swiss law requires that a doctor do an examination and prescribe the drug for people wanting to kill themselves.
