Most Belgian Euthanasia Not Reported

From Expatica

Actually that is an understatement.

There are 30 requests for assisted suicide lodged on average with the euthanasia committee every month.

However, commission chief Wim Distelmans suspects that many more people are undergoing euthanasia.

"If we compare our situation with the situation in the Netherlands, we can assume that the actual number of people undergoing euthanasia is five times as high or about 150," Distelmans said.

Why if euthanasia has been legal since 2002, are only 20% of the cases in Belgium reported? This is a huge red flag that abuses are occurring like this one. This is unregulated killing, pure and simple.
