After strongly objecting❌ to the Supreme Court's🏤 decision to make a framework to legalise euthanasia, NDA Govt changed it's stance today😳 and confirmed that Directorate General of Health Services (DGHS) has proposed formulation of legislation on passive euthanasia but would wait for the court's judgement on it👍. The Centre said in its response to a petition📋, that active euthanasia will not be legalised✋ as there are risks of misuse😨. Active euthanasia involves the doctor triggering cardiac arrest in a patient who has no chances of survival😯 while passive euthanasia involves the removal of the life support system. The SC🏤 had in 2011 ruled in favour👍 of passive euthanasia in the much publicised Aruna Shanbaug case😳.
