Call for NL to Adopt Assisted Suicide

Moving on from Euthanasia

'I am of the opinion that the Netherlands took a wrong turn in the 1970s and 1980s' writes former doctor, Wim Graafland in the 31 August edition of Medisch Contact.

As a doctor with 'extensive experience with euthanasia and assisted suicide since the 1980s', Graafland writes: 'This euthanasia practice – which has existed since the 1990s and was given its place in Dutch society with the euthanasia law in 2002 – has, in my opinion, had its day'.

Instead he is arguing that 'it is possible and desirable to completely replace euthanasia with assisted suicide. The doctor can then withdraw from this domain and focus entirely on his tasks related to palliative and terminal care.'
