Perhaps a piece of news that has not received much attention… Twin brothers in Belgium were euthanized after applying for euthanasia because they suffered from glaucoma. That’s right, they applied for euthanasia because they had glaucoma. A Belgian official said they may have not suffered physisically, but they did suffer psychologically. Imagine!
In Belgium euthanasia by lethal injection is available to applicants who are living with grave and incurable conditions. Officials can grant your request to die, there is even a government euthanasia commission.
