(Sydney Morning Herald) – In a study of states with euthanasia law, published in Current Oncology, Dr J.

For example, about 900 people annually are administered lethal substances without having given explicit consent, and in one jurisdiction, almost 50 per cent of cases of euthanasia are not reported.”
