Abstract

Belgium legalized euthanasia in 2002, amid reassurances that the practice would be used only under desperate circumstances. In the U.S., where euthanasia is illegal, many feared a “slippery slope” similar to the Netherlands. In this podcast, my special guest is Dr. Douglas Anderson,Professor of Pharmacy Practice. We comment on a disturbing new trend to use terminal sedation as a form of euthanasia in Belgium.
