Dutch Woman Allowed Assisted Suicide After Arguing Mental Illness Gave Her a ‘Rotten Life’
(The Christian Institute) — A disturbing case of a 29-year-old woman being euthanized in the Netherlands has led to politicians speaking out against changing the law in the UK.
Aurelia Brouwers was killed by a lethal injection last month after arguing that she was “entitled to a dignified death” because of her “rotten life.”
Brouwers maintained an online blog about her experiences of suffering from depression and a borderline personality disorder.
Lord Carlile of Berriew of campaign group Living and Dying Well said he was “horrified” at the death.
