(Daily Mail) – A similar situation exists in Belgium where doctor-assisted deaths were legalised at much the same time. Last year, the number of people to die via euthanasia in that country went past 2,000 for the first time, meaning the total has more than doubled in five years. But largely unnoticed, what has happened in parallel with this spiralling death toll is the growing number of organs then removed for transplant from those who have chosen to die.
