They are more than 750,000 the people who have signed the referendum for the legalization of euthanasia to date. Beyond 500,000 signatures were collected at the tables while digital ones passed the 250,000. To these numbers is added a still unspecified number of signatures collected in municipalities, consulates and lawyers’ offices and by some groups that have joined the mobilization in recent weeks. Among the latest memberships collected, also those of Roberto Saviano, Pif And Francesco Guccini.
“I signed up because today, without a law that regulates it – says Saviano – euthanasia is not a right accessible to everyone. I signed up to be free to choose even those who cannot afford to reach countries where euthanasia is legal. Signing to promote this referendum, however you think, is an act of respect for life and for others ”.
“The extraordinary result of the collection of signatures shows that the referendum addresses and gives answers to a great social question removed by Parliament and by the leaders of the big parties: that of the quality of life and freedom of choice until the end of life. The collection of signatures continues, also to send an even clearer and stronger message to the institutions and to the whole country. I am confident that we will exceed one million signatures, ”she said Filomena Gallo, Secretary of the Luca Coscioni Association.
