Euthanasia Doctor Accused Of Murder

[Media Source*]

(Hat Tip: Prolife Blogs)

(Expatica) BRUSSELS — An Oostende doctor has been accused of murdering five elderly patients in a coastal nursing home in the past three years. The victims — all of whom were suffering from dementia — died after being injected with a lethal dose of morphine.

The doctor, identified only as Boudewijn D.W., has admitted administering the treatment, but has denied murdering his patients.

In a nation that endorses euthanasia as a helpful medical practice, it is ironic that they are encountering abuses where doctors are deciding the fate of the patients that they are suppose nourish and protect. Many doctors in America and around the world are abusing their authority regarding euthanasia, under the mindset that they are committing the "greater good" for society as well as for the patient.

Societies should do their utmost to protect the weak and young from extermination, not encourage their destruction. Sadly Belgium does not value their citizens as highly as other nations, as evidence by their "process" by which one must request assisted suicide.
...an Oostende lawyer said euthanasia regulations are very precise, pointing out that the request must come from the patient and that the doctor must be certain the patient is suffering from an incurable illness.

A second medical opinion must be sought and the nursing team should be consulted along with the patient's family. The medical dossier must then report all of these steps and outline the conclusions.

Regardless of one's viewpoint on euthanasia, one must realize that implementing such decisions is irrevocable, as their is no current method of bringing a loved one back from death. Science is always striving to bring about cures for those who are terminally ill, and simply cutting off any chance for them to acquire that in the future is at best barbaric.
