International Chair - Euthanasia Prevention Coalition
The media report stated:
Minister Edith Schippers of Public Health is working on a protocol to guide people who want to donate organs after their euthanasia.
This means, for example, that they will not be able to die at home, but will have to die in the hospital. The doctor should also perform the euthanasia in the hospital. The guidelines established for this is a practical implementation of laws, said Schippers. The first version of the guidelines was written by the Rotterdam Erasmus MC and the University Hospital of Maastricht (MUMC).
Euthanasia/organ donation can become a form of coercion to die by euthanasia.
It is one thing to kill someone as a false means to a "good death," it is another thing to kill someone to improve public health.
Euthanasia/Organ Donation can coerce people with disabilities who are not terminally ill to die by euthanasia. Studies in Belgium indicate that people who have neurological conditions, mental or psychological issues or dementia make excellent organ donors, especially when linked to euthanasia because the organs are healthier than those from people who were terminally ill or nearing death.
Combining euthanasia with Organ Donation will cause fear that physicians will become willing to kill a person for their healthy organs.
