Abstract
Euthanasia is controversial amongst healthcare professionals worldwide, but the number of countries that allow euthanasia is increasing, and currently includes Belgium, the Netherlands, Luxembourg, Colombia and the province Quebec in Canada (1). Several ethical controversies, e.g. whether the physician should always inform patients about the possibility of organ donation after euthanasia, which preparatory investigations are allowed, and whether the donor should be informed about matching recipients remain, yet are beyond the scope of this article (2).
