The Central Bureau of Statistics in the Netherlands has posted the numbers for assisted termination of life (deaths due to medical decision) in 2015. The most interesting figure is the one in the upper right hand corner. These are the people whose lives were taken “without request”–431 of them. These were not assisted suicides (there were 150 of those). These were not people being euthanized (there were 6.672 of those). These were simply people whose lives were medically extinguished without their consent. That’s what we used to call murder, isn’t it?
