  1. >The center said it honored nearly 900, or about one-third, of the requests it received in 2019. The requests often were in cases of people with dementia or suffering multiple physical complaints linked to old age.

  2. Euthanasia should be legal and freely available to anyone for any reason

  3. This is the best tl;dr I could make, [original](https://apnews.com/bdebcf3cd85f4e1b2e1e931dc1a51a51) reduced by 75%. (I’m a bot)

    > AMSTERDAM – A Dutch organization that carries out euthanasia received 3,122 requests last year, a 22% increase from the year before, the Euthanasia Expertise Center said Friday.

    > The center has experts who advise general practitioners in euthanasia cases and teams made up of doctors, psychiatrists and nurses who visit patients to evaluate their requests and administer fatal doses of drugs if they meet euthanasia criteria.

    > Regional monitoring committees that evaluate all cases of euthanasia said that all of the requests honored by the center were carried out "Carefully," meaning in accordance with the legislation, the center said.

  4. Does anyone know what’s the method used for euthanasia?

  5. I think dementia should be a disqualifying condition. Am I wrong here? Aren’t we on the edge of curing or reversing Alzheimer’s?
