My issue is that they are harassing (and bordering on intimidation) old people who have done nothing more than, in essence, attend a meeting where the law and various matters related to it are discussed. Which, in my view, is pretty much a political meeting rather than something more nefarious.

Completely agree. The little that has been reported sounds like a terrible way to approach these issues.

There should be no confusion between ethical euthanasia chosen in very limited circumstances, and other things for example.
