Euthanasia: we can live without it
Opposition launched in Dublin to coming assisted suicide bill
Dissent amongst Dutch doctors over euthanasia in dementia cases.
Recent reports on the release of the 2010 Dutch euthanasia figures have tended to suggest that the garden is rosy in the Netherlands. UK Care Not Killing Alliance director, Dr. Peter Saunders explains why that's not the case.
We reported earlier on a UK Daily Mail article quoting Professor Boer and his volta face on euthanasia. Professor Boer is a Dutch ethicist and former supporter of Dutch euthanasia laws who is now telling Britain: Don't go there!
a posteriori judgement of the facts has a fatal flaw: the main witness is deceased!
The Netherlands euthanasia lobby is now lobbying the government to approve euthanasia for people who are healthy but "tired of living."
But now euthanasia is often given to people who still had some time to live.
In an eleventh-hour intervention, former supporter of the Dutch Euthanasia laws and member of the Euthanasia Review Committee in The Netherlands, Professor Theo Boer tells Britain that he was wrong.
Boer believes that the Dutch euthanasia law should be tightened.
"Once a law has been established it will create its own demand, it will create its own dynamics; which means that, in The Netherlands, at this moment, there is still an enormous pressure to liberalise further."
Whatever the outcome, what is abundantly clear is that once we create legal excuses for killing there will be more excuses and more killing.
It had to happen... there's a perverse but inevitable logic to extension of euthanasia to children.
It's official. Like Belgium, The Netherlands has completely lost any sense of respect for the law and has leapt, lemming like off the moral cliff.
The medical industrial complex has an inaccurate, but incredibly powerful, view on my life. Disability is often framed, in medical terms, as the ultimate disaster and certainly as a deficit.
Whenever I speak on the subject of euthanasia & assisted suicide, one of my main points is always the issue of Elder Abuse. But pro-euthanasia people deny the risk...
