Belgium's historic trial of three doctors for illegally killing a mentally ill woman in 2010 gives a glimpse of what's going on backstage in its euthanasia system. Whether or not they are convicted — and on past form, this is unlikely — I don't think that anyone will be able to claim that it works with clockwork efficiency and compassion. It's a sad and shabby business.
