European Doctors Push for Harvesting Organs from Patients They Helped KillBy Lianne Laurence
NRL News Today - April 18, 2017
A group of Dutch and Belgian research doctors have released a study that calculates how many organs Belgians killed by euthanasia could have donated.
In an article in the April article in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA), six research doctors write that organ donation after euthanasia “is controversial and currently only allowed in Belgium and the Netherlands.”
But since the Belgium data was collected in 2015, Canada has legalized euthanasia in June 2016, and it, too, allows organ donation after euthanasia.
And it appears that Canadians are forging ahead with the practice.
