Sorry about the typos guys, still half asleep.
Anyways, euthanasia is legal in Belgium--agree with it. Why suffer unneccessarily?
Here's an excerpt from the article:
"More than 1,000 people legally availed themselves of doctor-assisted deaths in Belgium in 2011, most of them were terminally ill cancer patients.
The brothers are unique in that their illness was not terminal. Belgian law, however, allows doctors to euthanize suffering patients who are both mentally sound, over 18 and want to die.
Belgian lawmakers are considering a law that would extend euthanasia to dementia patients and children, whose families and doctors consented."

Here in the UK we show more mercy to suffering dogs than we do to suffering people. Anyway, here are more details regarding the story you mention.
"Distraught about going blind, 45-year-old deaf twin brothers from Belgium chose to be euthanized because they couldn't bear not to see one another, according to reports from Flanders.
Marc and Eddy Verbessem of Putte died Dec. 14 by lethal injection at Brussels University Hospital. Voluntary euthanasia has been legal in Belgium since September 2002.
The doctor who presided over the euthanasia described the twins as being "very happy."
"It was a relief to see the end of their suffering," David Dufour told Germany's RTL TV network. "They had a cup of coffee in the hall, it went well, and a rich conversation. The separation from their parents and brother was very serene and beautiful. At the last, there was a little wave of their hands, and then they were gone.""

I agree with it. If someone is terminally ill and in constant agony--why not end their suffering? G-d has given us the ability to create humane methods of doing so--why not utilize it? I hope that this comes to the U.S.A.
