To Kelly: A Letter of Hope
Kelly, a 23-year-old physically healthy woman who lives in Leuven, Belgium, is being considered for death by euthanasia (lethal injection) for psychiatric reasons.
(Read the article on the EPC blog: Physically healthy 23-year-old Belgian woman is being considered for euthanasia.)
Kelly is being considered for euthanasia even though experts agree that young people, such as Kelly, can be treated and can get better. Sadly, many people experience psychological suffering but it is not a reason to kill them!
Euthanasia is an abandonment of people at the lowest time of their life; euthanasia for psychological reasons is a complete abandonment of hope.
It is our hope that Kelly finds hope and a purpose to live.
