Funeral products study indicates that euthanasia and assisted suicide increases demand for funeral services

A report for the funeral products industry indicates that there is an increased demand for funeral products for several reasons, including the legalization of euthanasia and assisted suicide.

The report states that between 2017 and 2022, there will be a 16.7% increase in demand for funeral products and services primarily based on an aging population, increased world-wide wealth and the legalization of euthanasia and assisted suicide.

According to the report, the aging population will increase the number of deaths while the increased world-wide wealth enables people to afford to spend more on funeral services. But the report also comments on how euthanasia will increase demand for funeral products and services. The report states:

Increasing demand for performing euthanasia in the hospitals has significantly contributed towards the mortality rate globally. ... Lethal vaccinations such as potassium chloride, sodium thiopental and pancuronium bromide are injected in the patients suffering from various terminal illness such as neurological conditions, last stage of Alzheimer’s, chronic lung problem and heart failures. Bound to these factors, the funeral products & services are likely to witness significant demand in the global market.
I assume this means that the drug companies that produce potassium chloride, sodium thiopental and pancuronium bromide are also experiencing an increase in sales.
