(The Christian Institute)— Medics from the University of London and Maastricht University are concerned that euthanasia in the Netherlands is approved too readily and puts vulnerable people at risk.
Responding to a Guardian article, they agreed that the life-ending procedure is a “slippery slope” with ever-changing standards.
This comes as the Royal College of Physicians is about to poll its members for their views on assisted suicide in the UK.
Writing for The Guardian, Christopher de Bellaigue argued that lethal medication has “in fact become normal” in the Netherlands despite the fact the law was intended for patients facing late-stage terminal cancer.
