Yahoo! News - Netherlands Hospital Euthanizes Babies: "'The slippery slope in the Netherlands has descended already into a vertical cliff,' said Wesley J. Smith, a prominent California-based critic, in an e-mail to The Associated Press."

The hard thing here is that people struggle with the difference between forseeing and intending consequences. Killing people isn't the only way to relieve pain. Sometimes, pain relief might result in death... but "intending pain relief and forseeing possible death" is very, very different from "intending death (by means of a pain reliever)."
