I have been warning (with increasing intensity) about a pending medical martyrdom–forcing doctors to choose between killing and continuing in their profession–both from the contexts of statutory law and professional discipline.
Now, in the Netherlands, we see a doctor reported to the medical board–essentially for malpractice–for recommending against a euthanasia killing.
Milou de Moor had lupus and depression. She wanted euthanasia. Apparently receiving permission, the killing was called off because her GP didn’t agree, and she subsequently killed herself.
From the PZC story story (Google translation):
The good news was that the euthanasia of Milou was approved by the Ethics Committee.
Note the culture of death’s insidious mutation of society and culture–the killing of a 19 year-old called “good news.”
