Euthanasia Clinic Unable to Cope with Requests

The number of requests for euthanasia made to a special clinic for people whose doctors won’t help them die is rising fast.  The organization is looking for an additional 50 staff members.  The director said that the rise in the number of requests for euthanasia is due to the fact that more people want to choose how they die.  The taboo is disappearing.  Amsterdam Free University researcher, Bregje Onwuteaka-Philipsen, said that requests for euthanasia rose from 13,000 in 2011 to 18,000 in 2016.
