Eutanasia death: 17-year old girl in the Netherlands - Ajda Slovenia - 07-06-19

Eutanasia death: 17-year old girl in the Netherlands 

The euthanasia story which has recently circled in the media prompted me to start this new thread. If you read that story, here is what happened:

The euthanasia that wasn’t (5 Jun 2019)
Noa Pothoven sought help to end her life but was refused.
It was a story too horrible to be true: A 17-year-old victim of sexual assault had been euthanized in the Netherlands.
And indeed, it wasn’t true. Noa Pothoven, a sufferer of anorexia and other mental illnesses, had previously sought euthanasia at a clinic without telling her parents — but she had been refused.

It is still a very sad story. But not quite as appalling as reported by many media.

Thanks. Very useful.
I was not interesting by this story but I have seen the title.
