Well aware of citizens’ concerns with regard to the end-of-life question, expressed both in recent surveys and online petitions that collected over 350,000 signatures, the ESEC took up the subject on its own initiative (having tackled it once before in an opinion of 24 February 1999) in a new context brought about by the enactment of the Claeys-Léonetti Law in 2016 and the opening of the Estates General on Bioethics on 18 January 2018, in line with the President of the Republic’s wishes.
