After unsuccessful operations transsexual Nathan Verhelst was 'helped to die' because of 'unbearable' psychological suffering
This is so tragic. I'm really not for euthanasia, especially not for a 44 year old. I can't help but think surely a surgeon somewhere could have helped, surely a counselor somewhere could have helped him come to terms with his scars and altered body image. Many people live their lives with disfiguring scars and deformities, it's tragic and sad but, they still manage to find meaning in life and things that are worthwhile to them without resorting to suicide. Although, I can and do sympathise, and it's not for me or anyone else to say what's unbearable and what's not, it just makes me feel so sad
