Is euthanasia for psychological suffering changing Belgian medicine?

first_imgMercatorNet 7 November 2017Family First Comment: Disturbing to see what’s happening in Belgium. “Death by euthanasia in Belgium is, generally, no longer regarded as an exception requiring special justification. Instead, it is often regarded as a normal death and a benefit not to be restricted to without special justification.” Belgium’s debate over euthanasia for psychological suffering is heating up. Last week 42 psychiatrists, psychologists and academics published an open letter calling for a national debate on euthanasia and mental illness.Euthanasia because of unbearable and futile psychological suffering is very problematic. It is about people who are not terminal and, in principle, could live for many years. Therefore, extreme caution is appropriate both clinically and legally. The essence of the case seems to us that in estimating the hopelessness of one’s suffering, the subjective factor cannot be eliminated …The current law, the signatories say, is far too vague and flexible:“The law does not indicate the exact criteria for unbearable and psychological suffering. Any complaint about any carelessness in this area will only end in a legal ‘no man’s land’.“More and more, no matter how many criteria there are, it depends simply on how an individual psychiatrist interprets or tests them, aided by the doctor’s own assumptions and the patient’s account of his symptoms.”Some people are dying unnecessarily, the signatories claim. To stand silently on the sidelines is a crime of neglect.The danger inherent in euthanasia for psychological suffering is a topic which seems to bore the Belgian media. But it was jolted out of its slumber by an exclusive article (in English) from Associated Press which also appeared in the Washington Post. This prompted a number of articles in the local press.READ MORE: up with family issues in NZ. Receive our weekly emails direct to your Inbox.last_img read more

Fantasy Injury Updates: Carson Wentz, Golden Tate, Eric Ebron impact Week 13 waiver wire pickups

first_imgSunday was devoid of many major injuries, but after updates came out Monday, there are a few players worth worrying about heading into Week 13. Eric Ebron will be out beyond that, as he was placed on Injured Reserve, while Carson Wentz is dinged up and Golden Tate has entered into concussion protocol. Here’s a catch-all injury update on those three players and what it could mean for Jack Doyle, Darius Slayton and Sterling Shepard as you prepare to make your waiver pickups.Follow us for more news and updates on Twitter @SN_Fantasy. WEEK 13 NON-PPR RANKINGS:Quarterback | Running back | Wide receiver | Tight end | D/ST | KickerCarson Wentz injury updateWentz is day-to-day with a bruised hand, Doug Pederson said Monday. The quarterback is expected to be fine for a matchup with Miami on Sunday in Week 13.Wentz struggled without Alshon Jeffery, Nelson Agholor and Jordan Howard in Week 12, throwing two interceptions and losing a pair of fumbles. If any of those players can make it back to the field in Week 13, that would help Wentz as much as recovering from a dinged-up hand would, especially in favorable matchup. WEEK 13 PPR RANKINGS: Running back | Wide receiver | Tight endGolden Tate injury newsTate has entered concussion protocol after apparently being injured on his touchdown in the fourth quarter Sunday. He had been blown up earlier in the game on a punt return and checked out before returning, so there might have been a couple of costly blows to Tate’s head in that game.Sterling Shepard and Darius Slayton both played slightly more than Tate on Sunday, and both would be WR3/FLEX options in Week 13 against the Packers if Tate is out. If all three play, they all can have some FLEX utility.MORE WEEK 13:Waiver pickups | FAAB budget | Snap counts | Stock watch | Fantasy playoff SOS Eric Ebron to IR; Jack Doyle fantasy outlookEric Ebron (ankle) was placed on Injured Reserve, ending his season. That means Jack Doyle is probably in line for a bit more production, with Mo Alie-Cox, the former VCU basketball player, stepping into a larger role as well.WEEK 13 DFS LINEUPS:FD Cash | FD GPP | DK Cash | Y! Cash | Y! GPPDoyle should see his floor rise a bit and could average four catches per game the rest of the way, which is enough to have some back-end PPR value. Alie-Cox could snag a few red-zone touchdowns in the Ebron role, but he’s not worth a pickup.last_img read more
