reported that nervous Nellies in the Netherlands were carrying “please DO resuscitate
me” cards instead of “do not resuscitate” cards. Apparently they are worried about the possibility of involuntary euthanasia. This week we stumbled across a
Dutch organisation which provides this documents. Readers in the Netherlands
may be interested. NPV is an
Evangelical group with more than 73,000 members which makes available “living wills” (Levenswensverklaring) which
specify that the patient wants treatment to be continued if he is no longer able
to express his wishes.
