17-Year-Old Dies After Request to be Legally Euthanized in the Netherlands


(The Daily Caller) – A teen in the Netherlands died Sunday at her home after requesting, but reportedly denied, to be legally euthanized following years of depression following sexual abuses and rape when she was younger.

Initial reports claimed Noa Pothoven died via legal euthanasia, but it is now being reported doctors ultimately denied her request.

The 17-year-old said that her suffering was “unbearable” and was given permission by a doctor to be euthanized.

She was reportedly sexually abused when she was 11 and 12 and raped by two men when she was 14, The Sun said. Pothoven suffered from post-traumatic stress disorder, depression and anorexia. CONTINUE
