The Grand Duke's noble stand

Henri, Grand Duke of Luxembourg, Duke of Nassau, has taken a stand against Euthanasia by stating that he will refuse to sign into law a bill to legalise euthanasia. The Grand Duke's courageous and principles stand has brought about a constitutional crisis in Luxembourg.

Jean-Claude Juncker, Prime Minister of Luxembourg, has threatened to propose a change to the constitution to deny the Grand Duke his veto. Juncker offers the customary and useless disclaimer that he is "personally opposed" to euthanasia.
