Holland's Euthanasia Law
Requires that the physician "has terminated a life or assisted suicide with due care." [Chapter II, Article 2, 1,f.] This requirement that the procedure be carried out in a medically appropriate fashion transforms the crimes of euthanasia and assisted suicide into medical treatments.
Teenagers 16 to 18 years old may request and receive euthanasia or assisted suicide. A parent or guardian must "have been involved in decision process," but need not agree or approve. [Chapter II, Article 2, 3]
Children 12 to 16 years old may request and receive euthanasia or assisted suicide. A parent or guardian must "agree with the termination of life or the assisted suicide." [Chapter II, Article 2, 4]
There is no requirement that the suffering be physical or that the the patient be terminally ill.
Is this what we want for America? Allowing 12 year olds to commit suicide? Those "tolerant" Dutch folks are the model for an "enlightened" and "progressive" society. This is their progress. Well, this and their marijuana and prostitution. Great place for kids.
