    w00t Belgium! :cheer2:

    Doctors in Belgium are granting a healthy 24-year-old woman who is suffering from depression the right to die, as she qualifies for euthanasia, even though she does not have a terminal or life-threatening illness.

    The 24-year-old female, known simply as Laura, has been given the go ahead by health professionals in Belgium to receive a lethal injection after spending both her childhood and adult life suffering from "suicidal thoughts," she told local Belgian media.

    Laura has been a patient of a psychiatric institution since the age of 21 and says she has previously tried to kill herself on several occasions. She told journalists: "Death feels to me not as a choice. If I had a choice, I would choose a bearable life, but I have done everything and that was unsuccessful." The date of Laura's death is yet to be decided.

    Belgium passed a law to legalise euthanasia in 2002, the second country in the world to do so after the Netherlands. The law states that Belgian doctors can "help patients" to end their lives if they freely express a wish to die because they are suffering from intractable and unbearable pain.

    Would it be wrong to suggest that I need a pic before making an informed decision on this?

    Sounds like she suffered a big loss. She needs a dose of Double L to turn that frown upside down.

    I don't have a problem with this. If someone wants to leave this world that badly they will find a way to do it anyway. Why not have it done in a clinical setting and allow family and friends to be there if they want.

    She has certainly killed plenty of wood in her relatively short existence.

    Why couldn't she succeed on her own? I don't understand multiple attempts to kill herself and failing. That's gotta be depressing.

    Hopefully now that the homos can marry we can move on to getting euthanasia/physician assisted suicide legalized nationwide

    Exactly! And now she needs the government to help. I'm tired of these people looking for handouts. Get a job.
