[Letter] Restraint in a request for euthanasia

Retirees have serious reason to be concerned about the danger of a law of death because euthanasia does not respect the natural termination of life but is the “active termination of life.” It is very common that some patients with severe suffering signed a petition for euthanasia, but when applied to palliative care and pain reduction, they changed their minds and wanted to live. What seems clear is that the right of the terminally ill to receive palliative care is necessary to relieve pain until the natural end of life.
