( England is in danger of following the Netherlands down the road of illegal but tolerated euthanasia, according to a London legal expert. In a biting article in the Solicitors Journal Jacqueline Laing declares that " It was precisely the failure to prosecute that gave the Netherlands its status as a progressive state permissive of euthanasia decades ago. This inevitably led to its legalisation". And she points out that Australian euthanasia activist Dr Philip Nitschke has already suggested that his supporters consider travelling to England where they can evade prosecution. Full story.
