Those Creepy Dutch Pro-Death Doctors . . .

This is the beginning of a long address by a Dutch doctor about how peachy everything is in the Netherlands regarding assisted suicide and euthanasia.

The Dutch Way. The solution in the Netherlands.
Mister Chairman, Ladies and Gentlemen.
To start with:
“Euthanasia, if allowed by the law, should never become an answer to failing care or fear of loneliness”!
Gerrit Kimsma told me once that to him the real value of euthanasia comes not from the act itself, but from the ability for the doctor and the patient to speak openly about it.
I am very honoured to be asked to contribute to this meeting of the French National Ethical Committee. more
