The Netherlands has long been at the forefront of implementing homicide as medicine. Their zealotry has been well documented, including killing to “cure” ennui and loneliness, or even against struggling patients who don’t actually want to die. The normalization of involuntary euthanasia proves that the promise that euthanasia was only to be used only if the patient is in intense pain at the end of their life and that the patient is in their right mind capable of giving consent is, and always was, a murderous lie.
Now the Netherlands is proving yet again how willing they are to outright execute people who are not dying, not in physical pain, and not capable of giving their consent:
“[In 2017,] [t]hree patients were in the advanced stage of dementia and 166 were in earlier stages.
“In 83 cases, the patient was suffering from severe psychiatric issues, a trend which has raised questions among psychiatrists”.
This is actually “up from twelve in 2012 and 43 in 2014“. That the Netherlands has passed a “presumed-to-consent-to-donate-organs” law, which would allow doctors to custom kill to order physically healthy psychiatric patients, certainly creates a conflict of interest, if not outright slaughtering “unworthy” life…
