Shocka! From Janene Pieters at Netherlands Times:
SP members Lilian Marijnissen and Renske Leitjen think there is a link between the quality of nursing home care and elderly people’s desire to make an end to their life, they said on Twitter in response to to government’s plan to allow assisted suicide at the end of a “full life”. Other parliamentary parties were outraged, NOS reports.
The SP rejects this proposal by the cabinet. The party is worried that a small group’s desire to end their lives will put pressure on others to do the same. “We must ensure that older people can enjoyed a dignified and well cared for old age. A society in which they have a place and with excellent care, if it is necessary”, SP leader Emile Roemer said. “Unfortunately this government has done the opposite, it made significant cutbacks. That led to extremely atrophied care.”More.
Reality check: Doubtless, laws will soon be passed against anyone reporting this stuff. “Patient confidentiality,” you know.
Don’t expect the local PC media to take it up any time soon. Never subscribe to their publications. Your life may depend on it. You are “the fetus” now.
