This should be a huge story, but isn’t.  Belgian doctors have coupled euthanasia and organ harvesting—and write about it in respected medical journals. Moreover, the eligible for the euthanasia harvest are people with disabilities—such as MS—and even the mentally ill.  Such actions give society a utilitarian stake in euthanasia, and the despairing a reason to think their deaths are worth more than their lives.

More details over at Secondhand Smoke in a post I call “Attack of  the Euthanasia Organ Harvesters.”
