Terminal sedation vs euthanasia

A recent report by a specialist in pain treatment, claimed that pain can no longer be seen as causing unbearable and hopeless suffering and thus as ­justification for euthanasia. Government Ministers Ross and Donner ­specifically deny that (legally speaking) Terminal Sedation (TS) or palliative care is to be considered as a real alternative to euthanasia.

The NVVE argued that pain is seldom the reason for requests for eutha­nasia as shown by the research results of Van der Wal and Van der Maas.
An opinion poll showed that 84% of Dutch people did not agree with the statement that now TS is possible, euthanasia should be forbidden.
