In court cases, policy studies and media stories, euthanasia advocates claim that Belgium’s euthanasia records are complete and transparent. The official euthanasia story from Belgium has been accepted at face value by the authors of these influential reports and court decisions: the Royal Society of Canada End-of-Life Decision Making report; the Quebec Select Committee on Dying with Dignity report; the Commission on Assisted Dying report - UK; the BC Supreme Court Justice Lynn Smith: Carter decision.
This book examines the record of euthanasia in Belgium, and exposes what these reports have overlooked.
