If I was dutch I'd probably be very pissed.
I believe it is the dutch that have one of the lowest abortion rates in the world due to a wide education program on parenthood.
I'd say what say you on our internal issues.
Work on your own. Fox news...geeze louise
no government but government enough to control things like this.... plenty of government to go around for that in these peoples eyes.
Which is what they want...to control these type of things.
I have a brother who is demented due to other cause.
He speaks to me of suicide every time I see him
But though I tell him it is pointless he forgets and then I have to say it again and again
Demented he could not make a rational choice.
Medically it is not a informed decision
So medically it could not be done it violates the medical oath.
ah such is life.....sad

She was kept alive by external support(feeding tube) discontinued she died
The feds congress tried to pass a law specific to her disregarding her legal guardian (her husband) and the medical opinion of her docs.
So we have govenment intruding on medical decisions.
After death her functioning brain the size of a orange
What they were unmedically taking as self guided movement were autotomic movements reflexive in nature.
But politicians being not docs did not know that
the docs that were in congress and favored that legislation...never did a exam of her
Her family dad and mom were not the legal guardian her husband was
They were however religious fundamentalists
The whole thing was a travesty
The idea feds should be making that decision...absurd. Legal guardian by determination of her docs and concurrent opinion that is how it is done always.
It happens about a thousand times a day in a nation of 400 million or so. But political theater it became in that one case.

With no potential of spiritual thing there is not much point in a human life
Not that one should be killed but brain dead...one can pull the plug.
I pulled the plug on my dad about 3 years or so ago............ more so I did not refuse their medical opinion to discontinue support, to be exact.
It is what happens in hospice care always...they pull the plug
Life support many years a person could be kept alive but with no brain there is not use to it
If the brain is left intact they will start breathing or eating on their own
Their are tests that are done to determine the viability of brain tissue
no brain but scar or swiss cheese by appearence.....
this happens always all the time
Now if one is being absurd about it(perhaps the guardian is a madperson) then the docs can step in with assistance of adult protective services or some such local governmental agency and become or have appointed through court order another, perhaps impartial, legal guardian
But that is very rare.
