This article just made me sick.
THE INK had not yet dried on a new Dutch law legalizing doctor-assisted suicide before the specter of an expanded euthanasia industry began to blossom like a deadly nightshade.
Last week, the Dutch parliament made the Netherlands the first nation to fully legalize suicide for chronically sick patients and to give immunity to physicians who help them die.
When the law takes effect in the fall, doctors will be able to euthanize sick children as young as 12, if the kids ask and the parents agree.
Dutch Health Minister Els Borst, who sponsored the law, now is urging the government to allow doctors to prescribe suicide pills for old people who are simply tired of life, even if they are healthy.
