The only way I'd ever approve this kind of medical procedure is for Democrats who are threatening to commit suicide because Hillary was not elected.
Sex abuse victim in her 20s allowed to choose euthanasia in Holland after doctors decided her post-traumatic stress and other conditions were incurable.
- Woman suffered from mental disorders after she was abused as a child.
- Condition included severe anorexia, chronic depression and hallucinations.
- Dutch woman, in her 20s, showed improvements after 'intensive therapy'.
- She was given lethal injection after doctors said treatment was hopeless.
It beggers the imagination that a doctor would actually do this to someone who is suffering from mental/emotional malaise. Isn't that what renders you incompetent to make such a decision?
Treatment was abandoned last year after independent consultants were called in and said the case was hopeless.Lord have mercy, this line of reasoning snuffed out over 5,500 lives in the Netherlands last year alone.
The consultants also said that despite her 'intolerable' physical and mental suffering, chronic depression and mood swings, she was entirely competent to make the decision to take her own life.
If the same euthanasia percentage (0.033%) of the Dutch population were to take place in America, that would be 105,000 lives lost. The CDC reports that 41,000 people commit suicide in the US each year; about half of them take their lives by use of firearms.
