When Euthanasia Becomes Murder


In the Netherlands an elderly woman suffering from dementia was held down against her protests as a lethal injection was administered by a doctor. In the days before her “euthanasia” she repeatedly said “I don’t want to die.” The doctor was cleared of wrongdoing.
Another elderly woman in the Netherlands was euthanized due to her supposed “unhappiness” about living in a nursing home. This despite testimony from the staff that she was often “content and friendly.”

Missoulian Letter to the Editor

Specifically, include people with disabilities. House Joint Resolution 14 included a specific recommendation to "address . . . the mistaken assumption that suicide is a rational response to disability."
Please ask the administration to simply request statistics on suicide of people with disabilities and include them in our Montana Suicide Prevention Plan 2018 rather than ignoring those with disabilities.
