Euthanasia: we can live without it
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.
There is no limit to the culture of death once it is fully off the leash.
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.

Once assisted suicide or euthanasia is legalized, it will not long remain a limited enterprise.
The media in the Netherlands has reported today that the number of euthanasia deaths in the Netherlands in 2011 increased by 18% to 3695 and there were 13 reported psychiatric patients who died by euthanasia, up from 2 reported psychiatric euthanasia deaths in 2010.
CBC news reported that a Czech government advisor was forced to resign because he is promoting euthanasia for babies with disabilities.
If euthanasia is a right, then there is logic in its imposition.
On April 19, 2012, an attractive 64-year-old woman named Godelieva De Troyer checked herself into a hospital in Brussels, where she was killed, at her own request, by lethal injection.
