The Parliament of Canada has until June 6 to consider Bill C-14, controversial legislation that, if passed, would legalize euthanasia in the country.

But some citizens of Belgium, where euthanasia has been legal since 2002, have a message for Canada: Don’t do it.

In a new series of videos, Belgian doctors, lawyers, and family members of the euthanized argue that legalizing euthanasia sets a dangerous precedent that threatens the most vulnerable in society and compromises patient-physician relationships.

“Don’t go there,” Hendrik Reitsema, whose grandfather was euthanized in Belgium, said in one of the videos. “Why? You open Pandora’s Box to the practice of killing as though it were a normal part of medicine.”

“We’ve had a protection against physicians killing people for more than 2,000 years because of the Hippocratic tradition,” Reitsema said. “And we’ve now arrived at a moment in history where… physicians now become a threat to their patients.”

Oh my, you really have to learn to check your facts.
I give you a D+ for trying.

It was January of 1996 that my Dutch grandfather was euthanized in an old people's home in the North of the Netherlands.

I understand this a double-blow, Hans.

Relax, there is nothing you can do. Your two countries are leading exporters of death, it's not really your fault.

Right, I have life insurance and opt for euthanasia due to illness, what becomes of the insurance?

Your obsession has been duly noted.
