Euthanasia is illegal in New Zealand.

The Globe and Mail

In , lawyer and cancer sufferer Lecretia Seales brought a case Seales v Attorney-General to the High Court to challenge New Zealand law for her right to die with the assistance of her GP, asking for a declaration that her GP would not risk conviction. The term right to die has been interpreted in a number of ways, including issues of suicide, passive euthanasia, active euthanasia, assisted suicide, and physician-assisted suicide.

That year, the Supreme Court heard two appeals arguing that New York and Washington statutes that made physician assisted suicide a felony violated the equal protection clause of the Fourteenth Amendment.

While in New York this has maintained statutes banning physician assisted suicide, the Court's decision also left it open for other states to decide whether they would allow physician assisted suicide or not. Since , five states in the US have passed assisted suicide laws: Oregon, Washington, Vermont, California, and Colorado passed legislation in , , , , and , respectively, that provides a protocol for the practice of physician assisted suicide.

Right to die with dignity

In , the Montana Supreme Court ruled that nothing in state law prohibits physician-assisted suicide and provides legal protection for physicians in the case that they write a prescription for lethal medication upon patient request. In California, the governor signed a controversial physician assisted-suicide bill, the California End of Life Option Act , in October that passed during a special legislative session intended to address Medi-Cal funding, [26] after it had been defeated during the regular legislative session.

Where we had once been devout and Calvinist, in the 60s we entered a godforsaken era.

Churches were turned into shops or apartments. By the end of the century, Christian political parties had lost their grip on power, and their dogmas no longer dictated matters of life and death. The nation had long debated the question of whether assisted death should, in certain cases, be legalised. And in , the Dutch parliament voted to make the Netherlands the first nation in the world to legalise euthanasia.

Central to the argument in favour of the new law was the right to self-determination. Today, nine out of 10 Dutch citizens support the euthanasia law, which went into effect in April This means that a physician could, for example, prevent someone with lung cancer from dying choking in their own blood. The debate did not cease once the law was passed.

New groups of patients demanded an even more liberal interpretation of the same law. And after every verdict that broadened the criteria for euthanasia, another group of citizens campaigned for even more progressive legislation. With every new demand, the debate would fire up once again. Nevertheless, the euthanasia debate seems to have entered a faltering phase.

A very un-Dutch thing has happened. We appear to be tongue-tied. I first met Joop on a cold and rainy September day in He was in his 70s. But when he started telling me the story of his choir and their performances in nursing homes for the third time in 20 minutes, I realised dementia had already disrupted his short-term memory. Even though Joop was unaware, in that moment at least, of how much his illness had already begun to eat away at his mind, he knew what was in store for him.

He could not let go of the images he had seen in those nursing homes. He had decided that when the day eventually came that he could no longer live with Janny, the love of his life, he would rather die. He imagined that it would almost be an ordinary day. His children and grandchildren would come to say goodbye.

That might have been somewhat naive. For some time, Janny and Joop had been looking for a doctor who would be willing to help him die at the time he had chosen: Dementia poses special problems for euthanasia cases. Under Dutch law, a doctor is allowed to help a person with severe dementia to die, if that patient had prepared an advance euthanasia directive back when they were still mentally competent. Joop had one of those.

He assumed everything had been arranged. Of the 10, Dutch patients with dementia who die each year, roughly half of them will have had an advance euthanasia directive. After all, this was permitted by law, and it was their express wish. Their naive confidence is shared by four out of 10 Dutch adults, who are convinced that a doctor is bound by an advance directive. In fact, doctors are not obliged to do anything. Euthanasia may be legal, but it is not a right.

As doctors have a monopoly on merciful killing, their ethical standard, and not the law, ultimately determines whether a man like Joop can die. An advance directive is just one factor, among many, that a doctor will consider when deciding on a euthanasia case. This is the catch You still have good years left. And yet, by the time your dementia has deteriorated to the point at which you wished when your mind was intact to die, you will no longer be allowed to die, as you are not mentally fit to make that decision. It is a sad story. The right to die has been discussed for so long now in the Netherlands that we have come to believe we each have the right to die when we want.

But when push comes to shove, the patient is not the one who decides on their euthanasia. It is the doctor who decides, and no one else. For the thousands of dementia patients who thought they would escape the worst of the disease, the Dutch euthanasia law is an utter failure. In , there were 6, official cases of euthanasia in the Netherlands, the majority of them for cancer patients. By contrast, since , only seven people with severe dementia died by euthanasia.

In , when he was no longer able to write, the Flemish author Hugo Claus, who had several times been tipped to win the Nobel prize for literature, chose euthanasia. And yet the death of Claus helped bring about a shift. According to the sociologist Hugo van der Wedden, those with dementia were given a voice, and were listened to more often than before. The fear of future suffering was recognised by doctors as unbearable suffering itself and, as a result, some doctors are now more willing to provide euthanasia to people in the early stages of dementia.

Still, the catch remains. The patient must still be deemed mentally fit to confirm that they want to die. If they linger too long, if they want to see one more spring with flowering apple trees, and subsequently slip into a deeper dementia, the opportunity for an early death will have passed. The only thing left will the long detour to the grave. Since , roughly , Dutch people with dementia have died. Tens of thousands of them stated their wish in an advance euthanasia directive.

During the first few years after the euthanasia law took effect, not a single patient with severe dementia died the dignified death that they had hoped for. That was what happened to Joop, whose doctor helped him die on 8 May last year. O n a Monday evening in February , 1. In the documentary, we see Hannie just before her euthanasia. At one point, someone asks her whether she truly realises what is about to happen.

On screen, Hannie Goudriaan is a woman of advanced age with thin, short gray hair, a surprised look and thin, tightly closed lips. He puts his arms around her, his head on her shoulder — as if he is looking for her to comfort him.

Hannie lets it happen. Her husband holds her. From the drip needle attached to her left hand, a transparent tube is connected to the syringe that the doctor is holding. Then the doctor injects the fluid into the vein. Hannie Goudriaan had known where things were headed. Years earlier she had written a will, which stated that she wanted to die as soon as she was no longer able to communicate properly.

Her personal doctor considered her wish for a while, but felt he could not be certain that she wanted to die. The clinic is where people can turn to when their doctor refuses to help them. However, the clinic does not guarantee that it will be able to grant a death wish. Its physicians will consider the same question, which is: The doctor who helped Hannie to die, in , a year before the documentary was broadcast, is Remco Verwer.

He read her will and spoke to her case manager before conducting seven conversations with her. And yet many viewers were stunned by what they saw on TV.
