Laws like this aren't unprecedented. Nazis passed these long ago.

My mom used to advocate for retroactive abortion.  Took me years to understand.

Article makes it sound like euthanasia is legal for any adult. Surely they mean any adult with a terminal disease?

No.

Any reason.

Botched sex change? Yup.  Deaf already and going blind? Yup.

There's a Christmas tree somewhere in London with a bunch of presents underneath it that'll never be opened. And I thought, if I survive all of this, I'd go to that house, apologize to the mother there, and accept whatever punishment she chose for me. Prison... death... didn't matter. Because at least in prison and at least in death, you know, I wouldn't be in farkin' Bruges. But then, like a flash, it came to me. And I realized, fark man, maybe that's what hell is: the entire rest of eternity spent in farkin' Bruges. And I really really hoped I wouldn't die. I really really hoped I wouldn't die.

Nah. Weren't it in Belgium where a set of deaf twins got euthanised because they were also going blind?

The requirements are actually pretty vague and include "mental suffering". But such requirements are mostly irrelevant, because "terminal illness" would be "as diagnosed by a physician" anyway, so it's functionally equivalent to just say that a physician must assent to the death.

"It is strange that minors are considered legally incompetent in key areas, such as getting married, but might (be able) to decide to die," Catholic Archbishop Andre-Joseph Leonard testified.

Leonard said alternatives like palliative sedation make euthanasia unnecessary - and relieves doctors of the burden of having to kill patients. In palliative sedation, patients are sedated and life-sustaining support is withdrawn so they starve to death; the process can take days.


how about we just ban the catholic church instead for being sadistic farks
