Dutch Couple Voluntarily Euthanized Together

It’s legal in the Netherlands, and in this recent case, the 91-year-old lovers died holding hands. They chose to check out for that long journey as a connected couple. Many may question: While their exit was Shakespearean togetherness, did they overlook the Biblical quote: until death do us part?

Of course, other than each other in spirit, the hand-holding couple actually couldn’t take anything with them into death. Some people were waiting for the moment.

The greedy hospital, doctors, kids, grandkids, in-laws, funeral directors, government tax grabbers and others weren’t far from the bedside when it happened. Naturally, they wanted to get their grasping hands on whatever hand-outs the elderly hand-holders left behind.
