    Rick Santorum was caught on video spinning a strange story about Netherlands. Santorum said that half of the Dutch citizens who are euthanized

    So, do elderly Dutch citizens really wear "Do Not Euthanize" bracelets? No, of course not. Euthanasia is indeed voluntary in Netherlands, though both doctor and patient must jump through several hoops before it actually happens. Also, the patient must meet pain-and-suffering criteria.

    It's coming to Australia.

    ALEX SCHADENBERG, Euthanasia Prevention Coalition: Mandatory Euthanasia by age 80

    In the Netherlands it is still voluntary, but someone who doesn't want to be killed can easily be found incompetent to make that decision.

    When my husband was in the hospital I hammered them on a daily basis not to kill him. We finally begged the hospital to put a note above his bed saying NO DNR ON FILE.
