(SPUC) – A Dutch doctor has appeared in court after she euthanised a 74 year old woman with severe dementia, which SPUC has described as an “act of utter depravity.”
Prosecutors have described how the doctor did not gain full consent from the woman before she was killed in 2016. Allegedly, the doctor secretly slipped a sedative into the woman’s coffee.
It has been reported that family members were ordered to hold down their struggling relative whilst she was administered with a lethal injection.
Prosecutors have argued that the patient, physically resisted the attempt to kill her, and they have also highlighted that not enough was done to verify her consent to be euthanised. CONTINUE
