Executive Director, Euthanasia Prevention Coalition
Assisted suicide is not the answer!According to an NL Times article by Janene Pieters, a recent study concerning the “completed life” has led Dutch politicians once again to demand a debate on the “last-will-pill”. Pieters reports:The D66 has been advocating for euthanasia at the end of a full life for some time, but the two Christian parties in the coalition CDA and ChristenUnie are dead set against it. The VVD also has its doubts. The D66 already announced that it will submit a proposal for assisted suicide for people who are tired of life within a few weeks.The “last-will-pill” or “completed life” debate concerns the legal right for physicians to assist the suicide of an otherwise healthy person who claims that their life is complete.
