Miley Cyrus implies she won’t procreate due to climate change

Elle magazine has an interview with Miley Cyrus that covers every woke topic: climate change, sexism, abortion, housing inequality, etc.

Excerpts from the article:

“My record is called She Is Miley Cyrus. ‘She’ does not represent a gender. She is not just a woman. ‘She’ doesn’t refer to a vagina. She is a force of nature. She is power. She can be anything you want to be, therefore, she is everything. She is the super she. She is the she-ro. She is the She-E-O.”

“I think it’s very confusing to people that I’m married. But my relationship is unique. And I don’t know that I would ever publicly allow people in there because it’s so complex, and modern, and new that I don’t think we’re in a place where people would get it. I mean, do people really think that I’m at home in a fucking apron cooking dinner? I’m in a hetero relationship, but I still am very sexually attracted to women. People become vegetarian for health reasons, but bacon is still fucking good, and I know that. I made a partner decision. This is the person I feel has my back the most. I definitely don’t fit into a stereotypical wife role. I don’t even like that word.

“I have a new song, “Never Be Me,” and the chorus says, “If you’re looking for faithful, that’ll never be me. If you’re looking for stable, that’ll never be me. If you’re looking for someone that’ll be all that you need, that’s never going to be me.”

She laments the expectation this puts on the female sex: “We’re expected to keep the planet populated. And when that isn’t a part of our plan or our purpose, there is so much judgment and anger that they try to make and change laws to force it upon you—even if you become pregnant in a violent situation. If you don’t want children, people feel sorry for you, like you’re a cold, heartless bitch who’s not capable of love.” Cyrus hates the word selfish. “Why are we trained that love means putting yourself second and those you love first? If you love yourself, then what? You come first.”

“We’ve been doing the same thing to the earth that we do to women. We just take and take and expect it to keep producing. And it’s exhausted. It can’t produce. We’re getting handed a piece-of-shit planet, and I refuse to hand that down to my child. Until I feel like my kid would live on an earth with fish in the water, I’m not bringing in another person to deal with that.

Obese model Tess Holliday comes out as queer while her husband calls himself a “queer dad”

Tess Holliday/Instagram photo

If you don’t even know how to describe your sexuality at 33 years old, then how can your life suddenly make sense? Liberal logic never makes sense to me…

From Daily Mail: Tess Holliday has opened up about navigating her own sexuality, revealing that she has recently realized she is queer.

The 33-year-old model graces the cover of Nylon magazine’s July 2019 digital issue in a flirty yellow swimsuit, and during her interview, she recalled recently chatting with a man at a hotel pool in Mexico when he asked if she was bisexual.

‘I said, ‘Thank you so much for asking. I’ve been thinking a lot about my relationship to my own queerness, and I think the word pansexual speaks to me more than bi does,’ she said, but it turned out the guy was only asking if she was ‘buying’ ⁠— not ‘bi.’

Tess isn’t exactly sure how to describe her sexual identity, but the interaction is proof that it is something that has been on her mind. When asked if she would be in a romantic relationship with a woman, she said, ‘Yeah!’ adding, ‘I might not know, like, what to do. But I feel like I’d figure it out.’

Though she now knows she is queer, the realization is more complicated because she has been in a monogamous heterosexual marriage with her husband, Nick Holliday, since 2015. Nick, an artist from Australia, describes himself as a ‘queer dad’ on his Instagram bio, and the couple will be celebrating their four year wedding anniversary on Friday.

‘I feel like a lot of stuff in my life now makes sense. A lot of the things that I felt when I was younger make sense. A lot of the relationships that I had make sense,’ Tess said of realizing she is queer. ‘I definitely have a sense of relief. I can connect with people on a more intimate level than I was before, because I don’t have to pretend to be someone I’m not.’

Tess shared a similar sentiment on Instagram Monday when she posted a photo of herself modeling a rainbow bra and a pink lace thong. ‘Happy Pride y’all!’ she wrote. ‘I’ve always been an ally for the LGBTQ community & I find myself trying to navigate my own sexual identity. I’m still figuring out how I identify and that’s okay because everyone’s journey is different. Love y’all.’

During her interview with Nylon, the plus-size star also opened up about getting an abortion as a mother-of-two, sharing that she opted to have the procedure done at Planned Parenthood instead of at the private doctor’s office in Beverly Hills that she was referred to.

Tess grew up in the Bible Belt of Mississippi, a state that had just one abortion clinic, and she is an avid supporter of Planned Parenthood. The mom first discussed the abortion on Instagram in May in response to Alabama’s decision to impose a near-total ban on abortions, including those for victims of rape or incest.

In her post, she explained that she couldn’t mentally handle being pregnant again after suffering postpartum. Although it was a difficult decision, she said it isn’t one that she regrets. Tess, who has been candid about her struggles with postpartum depression on social media, has a three-year-old son named Bowie with Nick and a 13-year-old son named Rylee from a previous relationship.

The social media star has more than 1.9 million followers, and she is not shy about using her platform to fight for what she believes in. However, she told Nylon that there are certain brands that will send her free clothes but won’t work with her because of how controversial she is.

‘Why is it controversial that I chose to talk about my abortion?’ she asked. ‘And the fact that I got an abortion when I was in a marriage and could have financially supported a child, why did I feel so much shame for that?’

She continued: ‘Why is it controversial to talk about the fact that fat people deserve to take up space and deserve to be sexy? All of that just makes me so angry, because I see so many people that are plus-sized figures and figures in general, like celebrities, and they will post Black Lives Matter in their Insta-Stories, but not on their page because they don’t want to mess up their beautiful feed.

‘It just makes me so mad because this is why people are dying, this is why people feel so alone. We are not showing up for these people, and we are not telling them that they matter.’

Tess, who has been working with trainer Massy Arias since last summer, prepared for the physically challenging beach shoot in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, by working out five days a week for months ahead of time. She was also mindful about what she ate but pointed out that it was ‘not in a toxic, diet culture-restrictive way.’

However, on the day of the shoot, Tess struggled with posing while her feet sunk in the sand and the waves crashed around her. A blister on her foot also popped, making it a somewhat uncomfortable experience for her.

Although Nylon editor-in-chief Gabrielle Korn said the model was a ‘hard working professional’ during the shoot, Tess feared she was coming off as a diva. ‘Obviously I probably have internalized fatphobia about myself and what the world has ingrained in us,’ she said, adding: ‘I allowed a lot to just get into my head, and I tried so hard to get out of it, but I felt like I just kept digging further.’

Missouri denies license for last remaining PP-affiliated abortion clinic

Why did the state deny the license? State health officials issued a new rule that women required an extra, “invasive” pelvic exam to get an abortion and Planned Parenthood doctors said that was unnecessary and distressing, and refused to comply.

Read the whole story here at the Daily Mail: Missouri’s health department has denied to renew a license to perform abortions for the state’s last remaining clinic.

The ruling on Friday morning puts the state on track to become the first state without a functioning abortion clinic since 1974, when Roe v Wade was passed.

For now, the Planned Parenthood affiliate clinic in St Louis can stay open and continue procedures given a preliminary injunction previously issued by St Louis Circuit Judge Michael Stelzer.

A further court ruling could force the clinic to close. Judge Stelzer says he will issue a written order outlining next steps.

The battle over Missouri’s only abortion clinic returned to court on Friday, the deadline Judge Stelzer imposed for the state to decide whether to renew the clinic’s license.

Missouri’s health department allowed the St Louis Planned Parenthood clinic’s abortion license to lapse effective June 1.

Rulings by Judge Stelzer allowed the clinic to temporarily remain open. He also told the state it can’t simply let the license lapse but must either renew it or deny it. He gave the health department until Friday to decide.

According to Planned Parenthood, no state has been without a functioning abortion clinic since 1974, the year after the U.S. Supreme Court’s Roe v. Wade ruling that legalized abortion nationwide.

Health department officials in Missouri have cited concerns at the clinic, including that three ‘failed abortions’ required additional surgeries, and another led to life-threatening complications.

As the license expiration neared, state health officials brought in some conditions that Planned Parenthood would need to comply with to stay active.

On May 24, the state signed a ‘fetal heartbeat’ bill into law, banning abortions once a heartbeat is detectable (roughly around six weeks).

A rule was also imposed that clinicians would need to perform an extra, invasive pelvic exam three days before an abortion, on top of the standard pelvic exam and screening.

Doctors hit back, saying the added step was unnecessary and distressing for women, and the Planned Parenthood-affiliate clinic refused to comply.

Spike Lee tells Hollyweird to “shut it down” in Georgia over their heartbeat bill

CANNES, FRANCE – MAY 15: Director Spike Lee holds up a fist as he attends the photocall for “BlacKkKlansman” during the 71st annual Cannes Film Festival at Palais des Festivals on May 15, 2018 in Cannes, France. (Photo by Pascal Le Segretain/Getty Images)

Another self-important Hollyweird celebrity who thinks he knows what is best for the citizens of Georgia rather than the elected officials.

Hey Spike, why don’t you worry about the kids being killed in the streets of Chiraq? You know, the same name of your 2015 film that lost $12.3 million dollars? Guess you can’t be bothered with them since that gun violence avenue didn’t make you any money. See his Instagram for what is REALLY important to him (Hint: self-promotion.) Hypocrite.

From MyFoxChicago: Director Spike Lee is calling for Hollywood production companies to leave Georgia over a law that would ban abortions as early as six weeks, upon detection of a fetal heartbeat.

Most studios that have commented have said they’re waiting to see if the so-called “heartbeat” law actually takes effect next year, or if the courts will block it. But at the arrivals line for Denzel Washington’s American Film Institute lifetime achievement tribute Thursday, Lee said now is the time for Georgia-based productions to “shut it down” and boycott the state’s booming film industry to drive change.

Lee acknowledged that a mass exodus could dent livelihoods, but cited black bus drivers affected by the Civil Rights Movement-era boycott in Montgomery.

“I know it’s going to affect people’s livelihood. But that’s how things change,” Lee said. (Well it certainly won’t affect HIS livelihood so NBD, right?)

“You’ve got to be on the right side of history, and the state of Georgia and those other states, they’re wrong,” he added.

Georgia’s economy currently gets a $9.5 billion annual boost from the industry.

Womyn who runs hotel in small-town Michigan offers free lodging to women seeking abortions

From Yahoo: Incensed by the spate of legislation severely limiting abortion rights in several states, the manager of a hotel in a small Michigan town posted an unusual offer on Facebook last month.

“Dear sisters,” Shelley O’Brien began in a post addressed to those who live in the states that have or are trying to restrict access to abortion. “We cannot do anything about the way you are being treated in your home-state,” she wrote. “But, if you can make it to Michigan, we will support you with several nights lodging, and transportation to and from your appointment” for abortion services.

The “support” includes staying at the Yale Hotel for free.

O’Brien, 55, runs the hotel in Yale, Michigan. According to The Detroit Free Press, the community near the state’s eastern boundary is perhaps best known for its annual Bologna Festival, which takes place every July. It’s a largely conservative town with a population of under 2,000.

O’Brien, a mother of three and a grandmother of seven, told CNN on Saturday that she felt compelled to take a stand after watching such states as Alabama, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, Ohio and Kentucky pass bills that seek to significantly impede a woman’s access to abortion.

Efforts also have been made in Michigan to restrict abortion rights, including introduction last month in the state Legislature of a so-called heartbeat bill that would ban the procedures after a fetal heartbeat is detected ― a point when many women remain unaware that they are pregnant. (Nice, unbiased reporting there, HuffPo…)

“Women should have autonomy over their own bodies,” O’Brien said. “If we do not have control over our own bodies, then this is not a free world.”

In her Facebook post, which garnered thousands of reactions, O’Brien promised that she’d provide several nights free lodging at the Yale Hotel, as well as “transportation to and from your appointment” for out-of-state women seeking an abortion in Michigan.

Speaking to the Free Press last week, O’Brien clarified that her offer “extends to anybody” seeking an abortion who may need support, including women who live in parts of her own state where abortion providers are few and far between. The paper noted that there are no abortion providers in Yale, but women can find such services an hour’s drive away.

O’Brien said no one had yet taken her up on her offer, but she has a room set aside for when someone does. She told CNN that she’d dubbed the space “Jane’s Room” in honor of Jane Roe, the pseudonym given to Norma McCorvey, the plaintiff in the Roe v. Wade case that in 1973 established a woman’s right to an abortion throughout the U.S.

“The only way this is going to change is if people are willing to risk something,” O’Brien, who’s been called a “baby killer” for her views, told CNN. “The reason they get away with stuff like this is because nobody wants to make waves, nobody wants to give up anything for it.”

Lawless Democrats: 42 prosecutors refuse to enforce state laws restricting abortion

It is said that for a democracy or republic to work, there must the rule of law. If you disagree with a law, you don’t just refuse to follow it but work within the system to change the law.

We hoi polloi, whom elites sneeringly dismiss as the “great unwashed,” who refuse to abide by the rule of law are punished. But this is not the case in America today where Democrat elites “do as they will” and blithely ignore or outright violate duly-made laws — with impunity.

An example are “sanctury” cities, counties and states. These are Democrat-governed jurisdictions that ignore, defy and violate the federal government’s immigration laws by providing “sanctuary” to illegal aliens with policies, laws, executive orders, or regulations allowing, and in some cases requiring, local law enforcement to avoid cooperating with federal immigration law enforcement authorities, as in deporting criminal illegals.

For a list of those sanctuary states, cities and counties, go here.

The latest example of lawless Democrats are 42 elected prosecutors — state attorney generals and district attorneys — who have signed a statement of refusal to enforce state laws restricting abortion, referring to the recent passage of anti-abortion laws in Alabama, Missouri and Georgia.

To impress on you the significance of their refusal to enforce those laws, note that:

  • The attorney general in each of the 50 U.S. states or territories is the chief legal advisor to the state government and the state’s chief law enforcement officer. In some states, the attorney general serves as the head of a state department of justice, with responsibilities similar to those of the U.S. Department of Justice.
  • A district attorney (DA) is the chief prosecutor for a local government area, typically a county. The exact name of the office varies by state. Except in the smallest counties, a district attorney leads a staff of prosecutors, who are most commonly known as deputy district attorneys (DDAs). The majority of prosecutions will be delegated to DDAs, with the district attorney prosecuting the most important cases and having overall responsibility for their agency and its work.

The 42 prosecutors’ statement of June 2019, “Joint Statement from Elected Prosecutors“, says:

Several states have recently passed, or are considering the passage of, broad restrictions on abortion…leaving open the potential for criminalizing patients, medical professionals, healthcare providers, and possibly others who assist in these medical procedures….

As elected prosecutors, we took an oath to uphold both the U.S.Constitution and the Constitutions of our individual states. Our U.S. Supreme Court,i n deciding Roe v. Wade, determined that every woman has a fundamental right to privacy which is “broad enough to encompass a woman’s decision whether or not to terminate her pregnancy.”4 As some elected prosecutors have noted, the broad restrictions in the laws passed by these states appear to be unconstitutional under Roe v. Wade….

[N]ot all of us are in states where women’s rights are threatened by statutes criminalizing abortion. What brings us together is our view that as prosecutors we should not and will not criminalize healthcare decisions such as these –and we believe it is our obligation as elected prosecutors charged with protecting the health and safety of allmembers of our community to make our views clear.

Prosecutors are entrusted with immense discretion…. In our view, resources are better utilized to prevent and address serious crimes that impact our community rather than enforcing laws such as these that divide our community, create untenable choices for women and healthcare providers, and erode trust in the justice system….

In sum, as elected prosecutors with charging discretion, we choose not to prosecute individuals pursuant to these deeply concerning laws. Legal precedent, as established by the highest court in the land, has held for nearly 50 years that women have a right to make decisions about their own medical care including, but not limited to, seeking an abortion. Enforcement of laws that criminalize healthcare decisions would shatter that precedent….

The 42 elected prosecutors consist of 11 attorney generals and 31 district attorneys, also known in some states as city attorney, prosecuting attorney or state’s attorney.

The 11 attorney generals, all Democrats, are:

  1. Xavier Becerra, California
  2. Keith Ellison, Minnesota
  3. Aaron Ford, Nevada
  4. Brian E. Frosh, Maryland
  5. Maura Healey, Massachusetts
  6. Kathleen Jennings, Delaware
  7. Dana Nessel, Michigan
  8. Karl A. Racine, District of Columbia
  9. Kwame Raoul, lllinois
  10. Ellen Rosenblum, Oregon
  11. Josh Shapiro, Pennsylvania

The 31 district attorneys, all Democrats, are:

  1. Alabama: Danny Carr, Jefferson County
  2. California: Diana Becton, Contra Costa County
  3. California: George Gascón, San Francisco
  4. California: Jeff Rosen, Santa Clara County
  5. Colorado: Michael Dougherty, 20th Judicial District
  6. Colorado: Beth McCann, Second Judicial District
  7. Georgia: Sherry Boston, DeKalb County
  8. Georgia: David Cooke, Macon Judicial Circuit
  9. Georgia: Paul Howard, Fulton County
  10. Kansas: Mark Dupree, Wyandotte County
  11. Maryland: Marilyn J. Mosby, Baltimore
  12. Massachusetts: Andrea Harrington, Berkshire County
  13. Massachusetts: Rachael Rollins, Suffolk County
  14. Massachusetts: Marian T. Ryan, Middlesex County
  15. Michigan: Carol A. Siemon, Ingham County
  16. New Mexico: Raúl Torrez, Bernalillo County
  17. New York: Eric Gonzalez, Kings County
  18. New York: Cyrus R. Vance, Jr., New York County
  19. North Carolina: Satana Deberry, Durham County
  20. Ohio: Zachary Klein
  21. Pennsylvania: Lawrence S. Krasner, Philadelphia
  22. Texas: John Creuzot, Dallas County
  23. Texas: Joe Gonzales, Bexar County
  24. Texas: Mark Gonzalez, Nueces County
  25. Texas: Brian Middleton, Fort Bend County
  26. Utah: Sim Gill, Salt Lake County
  27. Vermont: Thomas J. Donovan, Jr.
  28. Vermont: Sarah George
  29. Virginia: Stephanie Morales, Portsmouth

Singer Sheryl Crow says everyone is pro-life, including people who get abortions

From HuffPo: Sheryl Crow believes women should have the power to choose what to do with their own bodies.

“It’s not up to the government to decide what women do with their bodies,” the iconic singer said Wednesday on the red carpet for the CMT Music Awards. “We should have the opportunity to be in charge of our own bodies.”

Crow said the recent abortion bans in states like Georgia, Alabama and her home state of Missouri are simply “wrong,” adding that “everyone is pro-life” including people who get abortions.

“Particularly in the state of Missouri as well as, I believe it’s Alabama, I think there’s only two women in the entire … House of Representatives that are making the decisions,” she added. “So I feel like it’s wrong and I have always felt like the government needs to stay out of that.”

Planned Parenthood recently declared a state of emergency amid the sweeping anti-abortion restrictions implemented in several states across the country. In 2019 alone, 11 states have passed extreme anti-abortion restrictions or bans. Alabama passed by far the most extreme legislation last month, banning all abortions from the time a person knows they’re pregnant and providing no exceptions for rape or incest.

The United Nations commissioner of human rights recently said the U.S. is in “crisis” and likened the recent abortion laws to “torture.” “It’s an assault on truth, science and universal values and norms,” commissioner Kate Gilmore said on Wednesday.

Other stars who have spoken out against the anti-abortion restrictions include actresses Sophie Turner and Jessica Chastain, Ashley Judd, Alyssa Milano, Laverne Cox and Lena Waithe.

“Everyone is pro-life?”

Yeah, riiiiiiiiiiiight.

How Americans view 21 moral issues

From May 1-12, 2019, Gallup conducted its annual Values and Beliefs poll, using telephone interviews of a random national sample of 1,009 U.S. adults, aged 18 and older, living in all 50 U.S. states and the District of Columbia. Landline and cellular telephone numbers were selected using random-digit-dial methods. The poll has a margin of ±4 percentage points sampling error; the poll’s findings have a 95% confidence level.

Gallup’s summary of the poll:

There has been little movement since last year in Americans’ views of the moral acceptability of a range of issues, as birth control, drinking alcohol and divorce remain the most acceptable, and cloning humans and extramarital affairs are least acceptable.

A strong ideological split remains across many of the issues, but none is as divisive as abortion. As some states move to limit or restrict abortions, debate around this issue will likely only get more intense.

Political Divide:

  • Of the 21 issues tested in this poll, 7 issues are deemed acceptable by a majority of liberals but less than half of conservatives: abortion, gay or lesbian relations, doctor-assisted suicide, smoking marijuana, having a baby outside of marriage, pornography, and sex between teenagers.
  • Abortion is the most divisive of the issues: 23% of conservatives vs. 73% of liberals consider it morally acceptable.
  • Just 3 issues are viewed as morally acceptable by a majority of conservatives but less than half of liberals: the death penalty, buying and wearing clothes made of animal fur, and medical testing on animals.
  • Conservatives and liberals are broadly united in their belief that 5 behaviors are morally wrong: suicide, cloning animals, cloning humans, polygamy, and extramarital affairs.

Updated: Netherlands teen raped as a child is legally euthanized due to her unbearable pain

Noa Pothoven Facebook photo

Politico reports that the euthanasia story wasn’t true:

“The teenager died at the weekend, several days after she began to refuse all fluids and foods. Her parents and doctors agreed not to force feed her or compel her into treatment against her will.”

According to Charles Lane (opinion writer) from the Washington Post:

Noa had to wait half a year for a treatment place in an eating disorder clinic in Zutphen, which meant she eventually had to undergo tube feeding for a year at Rijnstate Hospital. If accurate, we have a case of systemic failure being “resolved” by mercy-killing.

Child’s mother in Dutch press: “There are also huge waiting lists there. We actually want one place for her, where she can stay and where all her physical and mental problems are addressed. You can’t find it in the Netherlands. ” Untreatable illness?”

From NY Post: A 17-year-old Dutch girl was legally allowed to kill herself using euthanasia after she was raped when younger and spent years battling depression, according to a report Tuesday.

“Love is letting go, in this case,” Noa Pothoven of Arnhem wrote in an Instagram post announcing her choice to die in the living room of her home Sunday.

Pothoven — who was sexually abused at 11 and raped three years later — said she was sick of suffering unbearable pain. “Maybe this comes as a surprise to some, given my posts about hospitalization, but my plan has been there for a long time and is not impulsive,” she wrote.

“I will get straight to the point: within a maximum of 10 days I will die,” she added. “After years of battling and fighting, I am drained. I have quit eating and drinking for a while now, and after many discussions and evaluations, it was decided to let me go because my suffering is unbearable. I breathe, but I no longer live.”

In The Netherlands, kids ages 12 to 16 need permission from a parent to be euthanized and must have consulted a doctor, who agrees that their suffering is unbearable and likely to continue.

But at 17, children no longer need their parents’ consent to apply to kill themselves. Pothoven turned 17 in December.

The Netherlands legalized euthanasia in 2001 — the year she was born.

There are no reports of her parents legally challenging her choice at age 17, although a year earlier, they refused to give her permission because they thought she should complete trauma treatment and that her brain should be fully grown before a definitive decision.

Pothoven, who asked friends not to try to change her mind, wrote before she died that she suffered from post-traumatic stress and anorexia in the wake of the sex attacks, according to the UK Sun.

Last year, she was admitted to the Rijnstate hospital in Arnhem seriously underweight and with near organ failure. She was put in a coma and fed via tubes.

In her 2018 autobiography “Winning or Learning,” Pothoven said she was sexually assaulted at a friend’s party at age 11, then again a year later at another get-together, before being raped by two men on the street at age 14. She has said she wrote her book to help other young people.

She said she didn’t tell anyone about the sex attacks on her when they happened out of shame and fear. “I relive the fear, that pain every day. Always scared, always on my guard. And to this day my body still feels dirty,” Pothoven wrote in her book.

Pothoven said she tried hospitalization and visits with specialists to no avail before eventually contacting the Life End Clinic in The Hague about a year and a half ago, around age 16 — without her family’s knowledge, the outlet reported.

Her parents had no idea she was tortured mentally until her mom found a plastic envelope in her room around the same time filled with farewell letters to them and friends, according to the Dutch newspaper De Gelderlander. “I was in shock,” her mom, Lisette, told the paper. ‘We didn’t get it. Noa is sweet, beautiful, smart, social and always cheerful. How is it possible that she wants to die?

“We have never received a real answer. We just heard that her life was no longer meaningful. For only a year and a half have we known what secret she has carried with her over the years,” she said. “We, her parents, want[ed] her to choose the path of life.”

Her dad, Frans, said the teen underwent electroshock therapy. He hoped she’d “see bright spots [in life] again, ‘perhaps fall in love’ or learn to discover that ‘life is worth living.”

More than 6,500 people ended their lives using euthanasia in the Netherlands in 2017, according to past reports. Belgium also allows people to get doctor assisted suicide for psychological reasons.

Euthanasia must be performed under the standards of the Termination of Life on Request and Assisted Suicide Act.
