Now if you get, say, brain cancer just move to Netherlands, call up the boys
and girls at Alcor and have them give you the deep freeze before any real
damage is done! If only Alcor would set up shop in Netherlands.


"THE HAGUE (Reuters) - The Dutch upper house of parliament on Tuesday voted
to legalize euthanasia, making the Netherlands the only country in the world
to permit mercy killing.

Forty six members of the 75-seat Senate voted for the bill, 28 voted against
and one member was not present.

Once Queen Beatrix signs the law and the details are published in official
legal media, the legislation will enter into force. This process is expected
to take about two weeks."
