“We all want to die without suffering too much and in dignity. [...] doctor, my ethical heritage and my authentic brotherhood undertake to respond to [this] request, "writes Yves de Locht, who exercises in Belgium and says he feels" more human "by practicing euthasia and in accompanying his patients "until the end".

General practitioner in Brussels for many years, I have also practiced euthanasia since Belgian law has declined this practice in 2002. The tribune of the bishops of France challenged me. The bishops of France say they are "sensitive to the sufferings of sick people at the end of their life or suffering from serious pathologies". They perceive "the distress of their entourage".

How many lives can one woman save in this charming equestrian thriller

  How many lives can one woman save in this charming equestrian thriller A week after Hurricane Fiona hit Puerto Rico, residents are struggling to pick up the pieces with very little help. Hundreds of thousands remain without electricity and water. Deepak Lamba-Nieves is the research director at The Center for A New Economy in Puerto Rico. He joined American Voices live from the island to discuss humanitarian efforts happening on the ground and what more needs to be done.

Conference of Bishops of France: "Isn't the deepest expectation active to live, rather than active help to die?

What is certain is that we all want to die without suffering too much and in dignity. Staying faithful to your own moments: is it not the wish of each of us? Current medicine allows, in most cases, to respect this wish.

Unfortunately, it is not the same with all legislation. Depending on the country in which everyone is installed, it will be possible - or not - to consider different trajectories when the end approach, when the suffering can no longer be properly soothed.

This reflection is fundamental for the sick, but also for the accompanying people, who remain at the bedside of those they love in the last moments. The way we leave this world can obviously worsen or alleviate the trauma of death for loved ones. I take up the words of the bishops of France: the suffering "must be relieved".

More and more French people are asking for euthanasia in Belgium

doctor, I would dare to say to these many French patients with very serious illnesses without any hope of treatment or healing: "Come back next year, you do not have Not yet suffered enough and you can still live a few years in this state ”?

I would add that more and more of them come to see us, very often often, and sometimes even on ambulance. Palliative care is very developed in Belgium, we work daily together. They like us, doctors, we cannot do everything. These patients often say to me: "Doctor, what have I become, I still exist but I don't live anymore, I am a grabatory, etc.

doctor, my ethical heritage and my authentic brotherhood engages in me to meet their demand. They leave my office relieved and at the time of euthanasia, they say thank you. I will feel more human, I will have respected, honored and accompanied my patient to the end.
