The former Dutch health minister who drafted the Netherlands’ law legalizing euthanasia has been found dead in her garage.

Police in Utrecht say an initial post-mortem examination to determine the cause of Els Borst’s death was inconclusive, but they have ruled out natural causes.

why investigate?....seriously, if the whole point is that people need to die sooner rather than later, shouldn’t we be rejoicing that she followed thru?.....

Nothing gets liberals going like a good witch-hunt against the “righties” they saw hiding in the wood pile.

Well, they’ve really nailed it down. Have they ruled out Colonel Mustard in the library with a candlestick?

Dutch euthanasia minister, 81, found dead

Why, in such an enlightened country, had this person been allowed to live this long, anyway?

Oh, that’s okay. She was just prematurely, involuntarily euthanized in the spirit of the law she constructed.

I’m sure, if she could be contacted, she’d be okay with it./s

It was a late postpartum abortion.

VIP waivers are given as a matter of course. Patrick Leahy and John Dingell have already been issued theirs.

When a person who was eager for others to die dies herself, it’s hard to care.

Why should anybody care? It was just a pleasant transition. Just death with dignity. A quiet passage to a better place. Taking control of his destiny. And other bull$h!t.

Hopefully, her death included a small measure of justice. Now if only some big name, pro death, elites such as Bill Gates and George Soros would follow.

Why bother with the cause? Isn’t it important in that country only that she died? Isn’t that the point of the euthanasia law, to rid the country of as many humans as possible as quickly as possible?
