17 June 2015
The report brings into question the existing euthanasia laws in Belgium
A professor at Hull University has written a report which reveals "around one in every 60 deaths of a patient under GP care involves someone who has not requested euthanasia."
Authored by Professor Raphael Cohen-Almagor of Hull university and published by the Journal of Medical Ethics, the report brings into question the existing euthanasia laws in Belgium. Cohen-Almagor states: "The decision as to which life is no longer worth living is not in the hands of the patient but in the hands of the doctor." [Daily Mail, 12 June]
