    That's incredibly fucked up.  

    I'm in favor of assisted suicide for the elderly who are suffering from painful mortal illnesses, but according the article, in Holland they're happy to kill for shit like depression and anorexia.  It's highly immoral in my mind.

    Not that depression can't be a crippling affliction; it certainly can.  But people also are able to recover from it.  It's the same thing for alcoholism.  I've got mine (sorta) under control at the moment.

    Well maybe not.  I'm sitting here sipping on a whiskey bottle at this moment, but my point still stands. The fact the government approves assisted suicides for these conditions is unconscionable.   Seriously, WTF is wrong with them?
