Luxembourg promoting euthanasia through its palliative care guidelines
Alex Schadenberg has the details:
The recent legalization of euthanasia in Luxembourg has already resulted in a change to the role of palliative care in the tiny European nation.
Under the title: New Guide for Palliative care in Luxembourg, the information states:
A booklet has just been produced in Luxembourg explaining the new law that was passed on March 16th, relating to palliative care and end of life support, which is renowned from the law on euthanasia and assisted suicide. Information and documentation are being produced under the leadership of the National Commission on audit and evaluation set up to oversee the implementation of the law on euthanasia and assisted suicide of terminal or serious and incurable diseases.
The role of palliative care has been changed in the new guide to include: The provision of a substance to end life.
