the netherlands

In the Netherlands, people wear

different bracelets if they are elderly.

And the bracelet is:

Do not euthanize me.

Because they have voluntary euthanasia

in the Netherlands, but half of the people

who are euthanized--ten percent

of all deaths in the Netherlands,

half of those people are euthanized

involuntarily at hospitals because

they are older and sick. And so

elderly people in the Netherlands

don’t go to the hospital.

They go to another country because

they are afraid, because of budget purposes,

they will not come out of that hospital

if they go in there with sickness.
