I think if the doctors had tried to help her more or proposed other things, she might have felt there was another solution. I wish there had been another way.feedback

The most recent one of them is: “Your euthanasia cases will not be treated anymore within our operation. The reason is a difference of opinion on how a request for euthanasia must be approved. We have already communicated this several times orally, but to no avail.”.

She told me that she already had the permission for euthanasia given by Dr. Thienpont. What was really shocking about this patient specifically was that she was very young and a number of therapeutic options had clearly not been tried out sufficiently. I can get a loan, I can buy a car, I can (have) kids, I can buy a house (and) do everything that I want to. But if I want to end my life, all of a sudden, I can't think straight anymore? That's something strange.feedback

Joris Vandenberghe

There's a need to be stricter because now we see that sometimes euthanasia is granted too quickly, too easily, without enough checks and balances. I'm convinced that in Belgium, people have died where there were still treatment options and where there was still a chance for years and even decades of (quality) life. I WISH THERE HAD BEEN ANOTHER WAY.feedback

Scott Kim - National Institutes of Health

Any patient with a serious psychiatric diagnosis will be in a lot of distress and could technically meet the Belgian requirement of 'unbearable suffering' for euthanasia.feedback

Jean-Jacques De Gucht

I think one of the greatest gifts you can give to society is to give people the possibility to choose for themselves if they're in a situation where they're suffering every day, to choose for themselves how to cope with that pain. WE MUST TRY TO STOP THESE PEOPLE.feedback

Charles Lane

The euthanasia of people with mental illnesses or cognitive disorders, including dementia, is now a common occurrence in Belgium and the Netherlands.feedback

Angela Sirigu

I cannot answer to this question. Personally I think it's better to be aware, even if it's a bad state, to be conscious of what's happening. Then you can have a decision if you want to go on or if you want euthanasia.feedback

Niels Birbaumer

Many of these patients may and will have been neglected, and passive euthanasia may happen often in a vegetative state. This paper is a warning to all those believing that this state is hopeless after a year.feedback

Mike Arms

These are the silent victims. There are shelters that have been devastated by Hurricane Harvey, without electricity, without supplies. Operation Pets Alive! has taken in an overwhelming number of orphan dogs and cats who had inhabited those shelters before the storm and were suddenly facing euthanasia simply because they had no place to go. We are honored to help save those lives and we are lucky to have incredible friends like Southwest to help make this all possible.feedback

Audrey Moulton

Kittens, especially young neonatal kittens like these three-week olds, have one of the highest euthanasia rates in shelters. Shelters are overwhelmed, understaffed and simply don't have the resources to give the around-the-clock care tiny kittens need for a few weeks until they reach an age when they can be fixed and adopted out.feedback

Connie Yates

There is potential for him to be a completely normal boy but we don't know because we just don't know until we try. I've heard from doctors that there's around a 10% chance of this working for Charlie so I think that's a good enough chance to take. I don't understand it, euthanasia is illegal, suicide is illegal. How is this legal? It's in his best interests to have a chance at life.feedback

Ashlee Holland

Ava got cleaned up and taken care of and her bedding was changed and we called it a night, only to wake up to 8 more puppies!!! We were now at 15! I had to tend to my kids and get them ready for summer school and came back to find out she had given birth to another 3 pups! This mama is incredible!feedback

Ashlee Holland

She was on the euthanasia list. She had no other choice, no other hope. I was basically her last resort along with Midwest Animal ResQ. No dog deserves to be put to sleep for space.feedback

Nigel Biggar

Abortion is a very important and, I think, difficult moral issue. But, although I have provisional views about it, it is not one that I have published anything substantial on. I have on the other hand written a lot about voluntary euthanasia and assisted suicide, spoken about it in the UK, Ireland, France, and Canada, and consistently opposed their legalization. On those two issues, my conclusions align with those of the Roman Catholic Church.feedback

Alistair Thompson

During the debate Parliamentarians acknowledged that there is no safe system of assisted suicide and euthanasia anywhere in the world, that changing the law would send out a negative message about those who are terminally ill, disabled or old and might pressure some into ending their lives because they feel that they have become either a financial or care burden.feedback

Marco Cappato - European Parliament

On Monday morning (February 27), after a second medical examination, he confirmed his wish to die. He then used his mouth – one of the few movements he was able to perform by himself – to activate the substance that would send him to sleep within minutes then, without suffering, he died.feedback

Kate Creevy

Diseases such as diabetes, kidney failure, cancer, inflammatory arthritis and meningitis and severe joint disease have become chronically managed diseases of dogs in recent decades, rather than diagnoses that forced a euthanasia decision.feedback

Rob Jonquière

These are children who have experienced and suffered more than most adults. They have endured terrible and distressing treatments. They are perfectly lucid and rational. They do not particularly want to die, they just do not want to endure another treatment.feedback

Marieke Vervoort

I have my euthanasia papers in my hand but I am still enjoying every little moment. When the moment comes, when I have more bad days than good days, then I have my euthanasia papers. But the time is not here yet.feedback

Alexandros Velios

The right to euthanasia, the right of everyone to choose the death he wants I think is the most fundamental individual right. I think everyone has a right to experience a dignified death. Not forced to become a wired-up piece of meat, unrecognisable to their own family, in a hospital bed.feedback

Alexandros Velios

One explanation is the issue of religion, as Christianity puts forward great resistance. All the authorities refuse to accept that people have the right to choose their own death.feedback

Stefano Rodotà

The judges did not hand down a death sentence; they did not introduce euthanasia. They simply agreed to the interruption of nursing. This was in line with the will Eluana had made clear before her tragic accident. Her parents wanted her will respected.feedback

Antonello Soro

There needs to be a law to cover the final part of life, to avoid the judicial vaccuum that exists at the moment, that leaves judges lacking the legal framework with which to deal with these problems.feedback

John Zaritsky

If you are going to debate assisted suicide or euthanasia, I think it is important for an audience to witness the entire event in its completeness and unless you do see the death and the manner in which a person dies in Switzerland with assisted suicide, people will wonder; Well how long did he suffer? Did he suffer when he died? Was it peaceful and gentle or was it violent and traumatic?feedback

Levana Finkelstein

You don't know until you touch the minute that you make such a decision. Otherwise, I don't know how I personally will behave if, God forbid, but I think everybody has to choose the way they choose and that's the freedom of everybody.feedback

Ilan Dar

It's a weird story of love between people, old people. And love exists, even when you are 70, you still love people and you want to help them. And it's such a human story that is universal.feedback

Jan Suyver

You can imagine that some doctors won't commit euthanasia for reasons of principle. But others may change their minds at the last moment, or there will be some who don't have any experience of it. There will also be those who may fear legal consequences and who don't want to have to answer for their actions later.feedback

Arie Nieuwenhuijzen Kruseman

We think that euthanasia is a subject that patients should discuss with their own doctor, the one with whom they have already a longterm relationship and who is accompanying them in the course of their disease.feedback

Geirland van Beirlant

When the situation occurs we have to perform euthanasia in secret. We cannot write down what really happened. Things happen in secret, cannot be monitored, cannot be adjusted. As doctors, we want to give the best cure possible.feedback

Elke Sleurs

Some people say that it is a choice between euthanasia or palliative care, but that of course is not true. It is just a final option that a minor who is terminally ill will say 'now I have too much pain, there is no way that we can relieve the pain, I would like to die now.' And that is the possibility that we have given, in certain circumstances.feedback

Francis Delpérée

We talking about an underage child who is at the end of his or her life. The question we are asking is whether, at a time like this, we can burden him or her with an another psychological issue: daddy, mummy, you gave me life now I am asking you to take it away.feedback

René Stockman

We see people coming in with that clear request 'stop my life, I cannot survive anymore in this situation'. They choose nevertheless for palliative care and after a few days we see that the question to die is not posed anymore because they receive again a sense in their life. It's all about sense in their life.feedback

Laurent Druais

Basically Laurence and Chantal should be acquitted, that is all they deserve. They only did their job.feedback

Laurence Tramois

I cannot identify what we did as an act of poisoning. It was nothing of the sort. It was an act for our patient, an act of love and compassion.feedback
