In the Netherlands, people with a very serious and deadly disease can choose to end their life with the help of a doctor. That's called euthanasia.

The word means good death. Euthanasia is meant to put an end to the patient's pain and hopeless suffering. The process for eligibility for euthanasia is as follows:

1- The patient makes an official request for euthanasia with his doctor

2- The doctor consults another doctor who judges that request

3- If the request is approved, the doctor will give the patient an injection with a deadly fluid, or he / she will take a drink.

The patient can only request euthanasia if suffering is unbearable and out of sight.
