Spanish lawmakers on Thursday passed a law to legalize euthanasia and assisted suicide for people with serious and incurable illnesses who want to end their life. The ruling passed the lower parliament house with 202 votes in favour and 141 against and 2 abstentions.

"Today we are a more humane, just and freer country. The euthanasia law, widely demanded by society, finally becomes a reality" Spain's Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez said on Twitter.
