In addition to free home delivery of Pizza one can now order a Euthanasia unit to drop in to put any ailing family member to sleep. How charming. I wonder what the Dutch will think up next?
The Dutch have on offer mobile euthanasia units to make house calls. New scheme called ‘Life End’ will respond to sick people whose own doctors have refused to help them end their lives at home.
The scheme, which started on Thursday , will send teams of specially trained doctors and nurses to the homes of people whose own doctors have refused to carry out patients’ requests to end their lives.
The launch of the so-called Levenseinde, or “Life End”, house-call units – whose services are being offered to Dutch citizens free of charge – coincides with the opening of a clinic of the same name in The Hague, which will take patients with incurable illnesses as well as others who do not want to die at home.
The scheme is an initiative by the Dutch Association for a Voluntary End to Life (NVVE), a 130,000-member euthanasia organisation that is the biggest of its kind in the world.
