  1. Euthanasia : the way we do it, the way they do it.

    Article - En anglais

    Although the Netherlands, Germany, and the United States are alike in having aging populations who die primarily of deteriorative diseases, they face end-of-life dilemmas quite differently.

    In the United States, withholding and withdrawing of treatment are the only legally recognized means for easing dying.

    In Holland, voluntary active euthanasia is also practiced; in (West) Germany, assisted suicide is a legal option, usually outside the medical setting.

    This paper examines objections to these three practices, and observes the differences in the background cultures.
