Der Streit um die generelle Zulässigkeit von Sterbehilfe ist ein solches Thema. Dabei ist die Kontroverse nicht speziell ein Phänomen unserer Zeit, auch wenn durch immer neuere medizinische Erkennt-nisse und Fortschritte das challenge teils noch verschärft wird, sondern beschäftigte bereits die Menschheit in der Antike. Weitere Brisanz erhält die Auseinandersetzung in Deutschland durch die Erfahrungen aus der Zeit des Nationalsozialismus und deren menschenverachtenden Eugenik-Programmen unter dem Deckmantel der Euthanasie. Dass die Einführung gesetzlicher Regelungen nicht zwangsläufig ein Tabu darstellt, zeigt sich in unseren Nachbarländern Belgien und den Niederlanden. Beide Staaten haben unlängst die Anwendung aktiver Sterbehilfe durch entsprechende Gesetze legalisiert. Es stellt sich demnach die Frage, ob und inwieweit eine solche Gesetzgebung mit dem unsrigen Menschenbild und unseren Werten vereinbar ist.
Aufgabe dieser Arbeit wird hierbei sein, die von manchen Wissenschaftlern und Teilen der Gesellschaft geforderte Einführung der aktiven Sterbehilfe in Deutschland im Hinblick auf die Verfassung und ihrer Grundrechtsgewährleistungen zu untersuchen. Schwerpunkte der Prüfung werden dabei die Würde des Menschen und das Recht auf Leben sein, welche beide Höchstwerte unserer Gesellschaft sind. Es sollen die Fragen beantwortet werden, ob die scenario de lege lata mit der Verfassung vereinbar ist und ob die Pflicht oder die Möglichkeit für den Gesetzgeber besteht, die aktive Sterbehilfe de lege ferenda zuzulassen.

By Francisco José Alvarez-Scheuern

ISBN-10: 3638769224

ISBN-13: 9783638769228

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2006 im Fachbereich Jura - Öffentliches Recht / Staatsrecht / Grundrechte, observe: 1,7, Fachhochschule Trier - Hochschule für Wirtschaft, Technik und Gestaltung, Veranstaltung: Grundrechte: Aktuelle Rechtssprechung, 21 Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, summary: Das Vorhandensein religiöser Symbole im schulischen Raum stellte das Bundesverfassungsgericht zweimal innerhalb verhältnismäßig kurzer Zeit vor die Aufgabe, zur Zulässigkeit solcher Symbolik Stellung zu beziehen.

Der Zweite Senat des Bundesverfassungsgerichtes fällte im Jahre 2003 am 24. September das viel beachtete und gleichsam heftig diskutierte „Kopftuchurteil“. Hierin ging es um die Frage, ob eine Lehrerin mit Kopftuch in einer staatlichen Schule unterrichten dürfe. Im Jahre 1995 sah sich der Erste Senat mit der Frage nach der Zulässigkeit der Anbringung von Kruzifixen in Unterrichtsräumen einer staatlichen Schule konfrontiert. Hier kam es am sixteen. Mai 1995 zu dem ebenfalls recht kontrovers debattierten „Kruzifixbeschluss“ des Gerichtes.

Um Orientierung in diesen Themenkomplexen zu bieten, stellt diese Arbeit eingangs die den jeweiligen Senatsbeschlüssen zugrunde liegenden Problematiken und Verfahrensgänge in Kürze dar.

Sodann werden die Ausführungen der Senate zu den einzelnen Grundrechten systematisch gegenübergestellt um aufzuzeigen, welche Gemeinsamkeiten, Unterschiede aber auch Widersprüche es in den zu behandelnden Beschlüssen gibt und sogleich anhand von Rechtssprechung und Literatur durch den Verfasser bewertet.

Schließlich wird das Ergebnis dieser Wertungen zusammenfassend dargestellt. Die Arbeit kommt zu dem Ergebnis, dass einer Lehrerin das Tragen eines religiös motivierten Kopftuches im Unterricht von Verfassungs wegen nicht gestattet werden kann.
