Non-Voluntary and Involuntary Euthanasia in the Netherlands: Dutch Perspectives

Croatian Journal of Philosophy 2 (2):161-179 (2002)

Abstract

During the summer of 1999, twenty-eight interviews with some of the leading authorities on the euthanasia policy were conducted in the Netherlands. They were asked about cases of non-voluntary (when patients are incompetent) and involuntary euthanasia (when patients are competent and made no request to die). This study reports the main findings, showing that most respondents are quite complacent with regard to breaches of the guideline that speaks ofthe patient’s consent as prerequisite to performance of euthanasia
