“Starting from 2007, the numbers increased suddenly,” Boer said. “It was as if the Dutch people needed to get used to the idea of an organised death. I know lots of people who now say that there is only one way they want to die and that’s through injection. It is getting too normal.”
“In the beginning, 98% of cases were terminally ill patients with perhaps days to live. That’s now down to 70%.
