Doctors and lawyers meet in Curitiba, in the next 14 to 15, to analyze the reform of the Brazilian Penal Code in the III Brazilian Congress on Medical Law. Among the items that can be changed are: notifiable diseases (art. 227), falsification or adulteration of product intended for therapeutic or medicinal purposes (art. 231); drug supply at odds with a prescription (art. 238).

We also discuss controversial issues such as exclusion of the condition of a crime of abortion (art. 128), orthothanasia (art. 122), as well as a reduction of penalty for the practice of euthanasia.

The meeting will be sponsored by the Federal Council of Medicine (CFM), the Court of the State of Paraná (TJPR), and is intended for physicians, lawyers, judges, prosecutors and interested in Medicine, Health, Law and Justice. The expectation is that the event receives 350 participants in two days of activities.

The CFM has already expressed support for approaches to euthanasia and orthothanasia in reforming the regulatory text, which provides for the decriminalization of orthonasia (consolidating an understanding that has been defended by CFM in the ethical sphere) and the establishment of mitigating circumstances in the case of euthanasia.

According to the vice president of CFM, Vital Carlos Correa Lima, doctors are opposed to euthanasia. The line will remain crime (punishable from two to four years in prison), but that the mitigating measures are consistent with the fundamental principles of law, reasonableness and proportionality.
