Physician-Assisted Suicide and the Dutch Courts

Abstract
Over the last two decades, Dutch courts have left room for euthanasia . Although a crime under the Penal Code, euthanasia will usually not result in prosecution and conviction if it is committed by a physician according to rules of careful medical practice ; if the patient's request is voluntary, well-considered, and enduring; and if there is unacceptable and hopeless suffering and there are no other solutions to the patient's situation
