David N. O'Steen, PhD, Executive Director of the National Right to Life Committee, stated in a Nov. 28, 2000 press release titled "Legalizing Euthanasia in Holland and the 'Slippery Slope'":

“The fact that euthanasia is being re-regulated in the Netherlands does not mean that it is going to be slowed…

Once you open the door to justify killing in some cases, the practice inevitably grows and grows as it has in Holland where there are now many patients killed who have never requested euthanasia at all.”
