Santorum falsely claims that euthanizations are rampant in the Netherlands.

O.m.g.!!

In the Netherlands this video is front page on a news site!

Santorum claims that:

- Euthanizations are rampant in the Netherlands.

- The Dutch elderly have to wear bracelets saying "please don't euthanize me".

- He says that 50% of the euthanizations are involuntary.

All these three claims are utterly nonsense! He is just making it up while he speaks! Euthanization here is under very strict law, and a bit too strict if you ask me.

Anyway.

People are a bit annoyed here that this nonsense is said, and talk about the unjustified death sentences abroad, if any is justified.

My hope is that the Dutch president openly confronts Santorum with this.

hahahaha.. don't even know

hahahaha.. don't even know how to respond to that.

I think it's best Mark Rutte lets this one slide.. he won't be able to stop himself from laughing either.

He´s just makes it up. Hij lult uit zijn nek!

What a joke. 10% off all deaths in the Netherlands??? It's less than 2%.
He's a an idiot!
