Here in Belgium, I work close to a team of medical professionals where you can go for euthanasia (which has been legal here since 2002) if you are
having problems getting it elsewhere. This mostly involves people with "incurable" psychiatric conditions. This team was basically able to set up shop
without any problems. Many doctors, legal professionals, ethical experts, etc have huge problems with this. The general population seems pretty happy
with it, overal.
The main questions they have to deal with are:
- Is the condition incurable? (This does not take into account what might be down the road..)
- Is the person suffering intolerably? (Who on earth can judge that, especially in psychiatric cases??)
- Is the person able to make a sound decision? (Again, who on earth can judge that??)
What it comes down to is that the people who decide your fate in these cases are all medical professionals. No one else can decide. It is extremely
dangerous to give one single group of professionals this power.
