5000+ Netherlands Euthanasia Killings 2014

The Netherlands killing bureaucracy likes to keep track of who doctors euthanize in that country, and why. 

In 2014, the total was nearly 400 a month, for a total of 5306. That’s an increase of 10% over 2014.

And yes, psychiatrists still killed mentally ill patients, 41 according to the report.

If the USA had the same kill rate–it takes time for a culture to follow and digest euthanasia’s hemlock–the total would be over 80,000 annually.

The culture of death grows like a cancer.
