In the Czech Republic, assisted suicide is not legal, but some doctors acknowledge that it is done in such a way that the attending physician leads the treatment of the patient to death. This is done by administering more patients with terminal stage, for example, morphine. It is quietly practiced and the goal is to put an end to the suffering of patients with incurable diseases.
