Woman says 'I don't want to die',
Dutch doc kills her anyway
Yet while injecting the woman she woke up, and fought the doctor. The paperwork showed that the only way the doctor could complete the injection was by getting family members to help restrain her.
It also revealed that the patient said several times 'I don't want to die' in the days before she was put to death, and that the doctor had not spoken to her about what was planned because she did not want to cause unnecessary extra distress. She also did not tell her about what was in her coffee as it was also likely to cause further disruptions to the planned euthanasia process.
Regional Review Committee Chairman (and past president of the Dutch Voluntary [sic] Euthanasia Society) Jacob Kohnstamm said: 'I am convinced that the doctor acted in good faith'. He has never condemned any killing that his committee reviewed.
