Euthanasia in Colombia

Bradley Mattes   |   July 15, 2015

I’m in the nation of Colombia and recently the first patient died by euthanasia here. It generated an outcry from physicians who oppose killing patients. One doctor said, “As doctors we exist to defend the value of life and restore our patients to health. The Constitutional Court assumes that [I am] a simple ‘technical worker’ at the service of the law and not life.” The doctor went on to say the patient “can freely deny any treatment with careful sedation. We don’t need to abusively force third parties to kill.” A nurse added her concerns about the government following the laws of Belgium and Holland, saying, “It’s striking that [they] want to imitate in Columbia a model that brings negative effects they know can’t be controlled.” Please pray for the brave people here in Colombia.
