The Kyoto District Public Prosecutors Office on Thursday August 13 indicted two doctors for allegedly killing a woman with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), an intractable disease, at the victim’s request.

The deceased, a woman aged 51 named Yuri Hayashi, ran a blog and a Twitter account.

After her post on July 22nd 2019, Hayashi’s next post is on July 28th 2019 continues to write on the theme of life care with a post titled “ALS and palliative care”.

The palliative care physicians have always been dissatisfied with why the euthanasia discussion is focused on cancer patients.

I heard that there are still some doctors who do not know that palliative care such as morphine is applied to intractable neurological diseases.

A palliative care item of #ALS was found.

From the beginning, I really felt that palliative care was a disease like all. I was also impressed by the repeated statements that “it should be based on the subjective evaluation of the patient”. It was helpful for future care.

At the end of the blog post is a link to a PDF, an article titled ‘Palliative Care for Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis-Focusing on the Relationship between Pharmacists’
