Euthanasia

Unlike assisted death, the onus for the action of killing is not on the person themselves who may wish to die, but on the physician or physicians who are meant to be helping them.

Many of the problems that accrue due to assisted death, also occur with legalised euthanasia, only more so. There are signs that legalised euthanasia in Holland and Belgium has led to involuntary euthanasia as Doctors and Nurses arrogate to themselves the right to decide who ought to die, and that pressure is brought to bear on people who are vulnerable that they be euthanised so that their organs can be harvested for use by others. Euthanasia, even more than assisted death, dehumanises patients, undermines medical culture, leads away from the proper development of palliative care, and debases the practice of medicine.

Right To Life campaigns against any attempt to legalise such practices, and for the development of palliative care services and end of life care that remove any perceived need for euthanasia.

If a person is admitted to hospital and they want to receive to food and fluids, we uphold that right and can offer advice as to how an intervention might be made to attempt to prevent these from being withdrawn against patient wishes with the sole purpose of causing death.
