Deaf twins killed by Belgian doctors:
A pair of identical twins, who were born deaf, have been killed by Belgian doctors after seeking euthanasia when they found out they would also soon go blind.
In a unique case under the country's euthanasia laws, the 45-year-old brothers, from Antwerp, chose death as they were unable to bear the thought of never seeing one another again.
They were euthanised by doctors at Brussels University Hospital, in Jette, on December 14 by lethal injection after spending their entire lives together.For some real inspiration, go read the comments from your average Death-worshipping 21st Century Americans:
Euthanasia is legal under Belgian law if those making the decision can make their wishes clear and are suffering unbearable pain, according to a doctor's judgement.
The Belgian law differs from that of Switzerland, famous for its Dignitas clinic, where only 'assisted suicide' is permitted. This means patients must play an active role in the administration of the drug that ends their lives.

I so agree with this policy, although all death is sad, these two are out of pain.Top of FormBottom of FormTop of FormBottom of FormRamie Friend · Top CommenterI agree. They wanted to pass peacefully and were granted that right. I mean, we are NOT going to live forever. As an adult, I believe we should all be given that right. I know if I were dying from an uncurable disease, or terminally ill, I should have the right to end my life....Dr. Kevorkian had it right!Top of FormBottom of Form· 24 minutes ago
