Spain's lower house voted Thursday in favour of examining a bill on legalizing euthanasia, a first in the country even if there will likely be major opposition as it weaves its way through parliament.Lawmakers from Spain's conservative ruling Popular Party and another from the regional party of Navarra voted against accepting the bill on Thursday.Centre-right party Ciudadanos, meanwhile, abstained, while all the other groupings in parliament -- most of them left-wing -- voted in favour.Now that it has passed the first hurdle, the bill will go through various stages in parliament -- with different groups likely to present their amendments -- before it gets to the final voting stage in the lower house.
