Voluntary Euthanasia Under Control? Further Empirical Evidence From the Netherlands
Journal of Medical Ethics. 1999 Feb; 25(1): 16-21.
Nineteen ninety-six saw the publication of a major Dutch survey into euthanasia in the Netherlands. This paper outlines the main statistical findings of this survey and considers whether it shows that voluntary euthanasia is under effective control in the Netherlands. The paper concludes that although there has been some improvement in compliance with procedural requirements, the practice of voluntary euthanasia remains beyond effective control.
