Sex abuse victim in her 20s allowed to choose euthanasia in Holland after doctors decided her post-traumatic stress and other conditions were incurable

A former victim of child sex abuse has ended her life under Dutch euthanasia laws because she could not live with her mental suffering.

The woman, in her twenties, was given a lethal injection after doctors and psychiatrists decided that her post-traumatic stress disorder and other conditions were incurable.

It went ahead despite improvements in the woman’s psychological condition after ‘intensive therapy’ two years ago, and even though doctors in the Netherlands accept that a demand for death from a psychiatric patient may be no more than a cry for help.

    Pretty obvious this was going to happen. Talk about a slippery slope. The more we hear from Europe the more depressing the news is.
    Or, perhaps Europe should just turn over the operation of it’s euthanasia program to the islamists.

      How long until they decide to empty mental hospitals so they have room to house rapeugees by killing everyone currently in those hospitals?

    • Kill someone because they have mental problems. Bariatric surgery to force obese people to eat less. Cut off Bruce Jenner’s dick because he identifies as a woman.

      21st century witch doctoring at it’s best.

  • Hey!

    Remember when everyone said that euthanasia would not lead to a slippery slope?

      They were right. It leads to a sinkhole.

    This is evil. I wonder if she was abused by Muslims.

      Well never know as they won’t release her name; but she was in her 20’s and it happened as a teen and involved disfigurement and physical injuries that kept her still bedridden a decade later.

        so, a muslim with acid

          Most likely, but possibly one with a knife

  • BillyHW

    Remember when they promised us how well regulated this was going to be?

    So does this make the original abuser a murderer now?

    • Rosenmops

      The abuser should have got a lethal injection, not the victim. Europe has gone insane.

      • The victim should have the option of being a participant in the punishment of their tormentor as catharsis.

  • vimy

    Maybe Europe should just euthanize itself. It would be more humane then the slaughter that is coming.

    So sad. But this is the coming trend: easier to off someone than to walk with them through a – oftentimes – painful journey.

  • Nermal

    How terrible. She should have had the courage to drink caustic soda or throw herself off a building. /s

    Lots of things are ‘incurable’. Let’s roll this out for incurable douchebaggery.

    EU Nazis and their death camps

    If I’d married a certain person I’d be living in the Netherlands now. I’m so glad I said no.

    This is really disturbing news. I think of Elizabeth Smart and what she went through and how clear she is about standing tall and not accepting guilt nor shame. That woman has so much of a good life ahead of her.
