  • BioEdge: Dutch doctors want to harvest organs of euthanased patients
    organ donation Five percent does not seem like much but this still means 250 to 500 potential organ donors every year He believes that Dutch doctors could even double the number of organs available for life saving procedures It could also give donors the consolation of knowing that they are saving lives even if they themselves have to die Up to now there have only been six case of organ donation after euthanasia in the Netherlands More have been done in neighbouring Belgium where euthanasia is also legal While getting euthanasia patients to donate organs might sound easy in practice there are a number of difficulties Most euthanasia patients have cancer and so their organs are not suitable for donation The most suitable patients are those with neurodegenerative diseases like ALS or multiple sclerosis There are administrative issues as well Most hospitals are adverse to allowing doctors to perform euthanasia if they are not staff members Many euthanasia patients want to die at home but if they want to donate their organs they have to die in an operating theatre away from their loved ones The protocol will probably create some firm guidelines Procedures for euthanasia and organ donation must be completely separate Only if a person fulfils all the criteria for euthanasia would he be eligible for organ donation The idea of donating organs must come from the patient not the doctor Only a doctor who is not involved in the organ donation can confirm the patient s eligibility for euthanasia The euthanasia doctor must sign a statement indemnifying the hospital against future lawsuits MORE ON THESE TOPICS euthanasia Netherlands organ donation This article is published by Michael Cook and BioEdge under a Creative Commons licence You may republish it or translate it free of charge with attribution for

  • BioEdge: Is fear of nursing homes a reason for Dutch euthanasia?
    two years after it opened in March 2013 322 people were killed there The official euthanasia monitoring committee says that the clinic had not observed the formal guidelines for euthanasia In the latest case a woman in her 80s had been partially paralysed after a stroke Twenty years ago she declared that she did not want to live in a nursing home a position she reaffirmed 18 months ago However in order to qualify for euthanasia in the Netherlands a patient must be suffering unbearably The clinic s doctors decided that this was the case based on some of her gestures and her repeated use of the words kan niet a common Dutch expression meaning more or less no way which they interpreted as I can t go on any longer like this The commission disagreed The doctor has based his decision solely on the fact that the patient was in a nursing home says its report In fact she seemed relatively happy there The clinic says on its website that it stands by its decision to euthanase the woman If we only have one percent doubt about a euthanasia request we will not go ahead says its director Steven Pleiter The authorities are studying whether to proceed with a prosecution something which apparently has not happened since euthanasia was legalised Euthanasia has many supporters in the Netherlands This week the Dutch Right to Die Association NVVE announced that it has signed up its 150 000th member MORE ON THESE TOPICS euthanasia levenseindekliniek Netherlands This article is published by Michael Cook and BioEdge under a Creative Commons licence You may republish it or translate it free of charge with attribution for non commercial purposes following these guidelines If you teach at a university we ask that your department make a
