Mentally ill ‘should be euthanised’

9 October 2015

Doctors should be able to euthanise those with “unbearable” mental conditions, even if the patient has not given consent, a Finnish researcher has said. Dr Jukka Varelius made the claim in the British-run Bioethics journal.

In response, Christian Legal Centre client Nikki Kenward expressed her shock, saying: “Imagine knowing that if sense and reasoning leaves you, you won’t see the caring face of hope but the gleam in the eye of your potential executioner.”
