Dutch Doc in Dutch

We've written before about Holland's fascination with euthanasia:

"The number of Dutch people killed by medical euthanasia has more than doubled in the 10 years since legislation was changed to permit it, rising 13 per cent last year to 4,188."

And that was a little over 5 years ago. In the meantime, seems that the situation has deteriorated even further:

Thing is, it's not really clear to me why this doc has been singled out: it's not as if the underlying culture of enforced expiration is new, or somehow a secret.

Perhaps it's because, according to the linked article, this particular case was "assisted suicide" in much the same way as The Soprano family offered free swimming lessons. So the *true* message is ... a more subtle, refined ... approach.

It will be interesting to see how the case is ultimately resolved. Perhaps it, too, will (not so quietly) "go away."
