Almost half of Belgium’s euthanasia nurses admit to killing without consent

Daily Mail (UK) 10th June 2010

A high proportion of deaths classed as euthanasia in Belgium involved patients who did not ask for their lives to be ended, a study found. More than 100 nurses admitted to researchers that they had taken part in ‘terminations without request or consent’. Although euthanasia is legal in Belgium, it is governed by strict rules which state it should be carried out only by a doctor and with the patient’s permission.
