Many doctors are uncomfortable with implementing the new Belgian euthanasia law, says the Scientific Organization for Flemish GPs: “the fact that patients can decide to end their lives, under the theoretically strict conditions laid down in the law, demands a change in attitude from many doctors.” The Organization for Flemish GPs intends to work more closely with other medical groups, such as the Life’s End Information Forum. 203 patients have been killed by euthanasia since the passage of the new law in 9/03.
