Two hundred and fifty pharmacies across Belgium began offering euthanasia kits Friday. The kits, which cost 60 Euros ($77 US), are proposed as a means to make the jobs of doctors who commit euthanasia in homes easier. A yahoo.com report said 40% of euthanasia there occurs in the patientís home.
Belgian health authorities report almost 700 euthanasia killings by physicians since its legalization in 2002.
